A byproduct of digital design and fabrication, paired with hand finishing and printing, this woodblock print is a physical manifestation of a digital working process. The images are personal work designed in tandem with a seasonal collection of digital patterns. Each is printed on Japanese masa paper using oil relief inks. [Edition of 12]
Through conception to execution, the design and final output of the work constantly mediated between the hand and the digital tool. The wood blocks were cut using both a laser engraving machine, along with traditional carving tools. The printing and registration was done entirely by hand.
The prints range from 3 to 6 colors, and between 5" to 7". The series was largely a byproduct of research into physically expressing digital work, as well as a "proof of concept" that required multiple iterations.
