Out of Ideas

Craft & Design

Steve Lambert writes:

As part of my Lower East Side Printshop Special Editions Residency, I created this series of silkscreen (and hand altered) prints called, Out of Ideas. This video shows some of the process of how each were made.

If you’re unfamiliar with the world of fine art prints, it’s not a good idea to touch them with your bare hands, wrinkle or kink them in anyway… you get the idea.

Video shot at the Lower East Side Printshop. Doug Bennett was the Master Printer, James Miller did the silkscreening. Video edited while on a residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Music except is “Can’t Get Satisfied” by Jack McDuff.

    I don’t know… don’t take me too seriously, i don’t intend to be rude, but that’s not the stuff you expect from make, is it? I experimented myself ruining paper and prints to make them appear older, like parts of a treasure map, but here…what’s the point? For the whole video i was expecting the guy putted together ruined prints like some sort of stop-motion frames, but nothing happened: maybe i am missing something?
