This exhibition featured the new work of a range of artists who have worked at the Centre for Fine Print Research, UWE in Bristol. Each of the works were realised through the use of cutting edge digital print technologies and explore new relationships between the notion of object and illusion made possible by such means.
Such works include Katie Davies and Peter Walters collaborative piece that translates audio data from outerspace to create three dimensional shapes and two dimensional images. Jeremy Gardiner and Anthony Head's piece however, is based around satellite images looking down to earth to map through virtual environments and 2D and 3D renderings an exploration of a section of the Dorset coast. The exhibition also features a work by Richard Hamilton printed at the CFPR in 2003 - The Typo Topography of Marcel Duchamp's Large Glass - which maps and annotates Duchamp's work in the form of a large inkjet print as well as an illuminated print by US artist Lesley Dill and large scale but intricate lasercuts by Charlotte Hodes
The exhibition was curated by Dr. Paul Thirkell, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Fine Print Research. Research undertaken at the Centre in relation to cutting edge print techniques includes 3D rapid prototype printing, laser cutting and artist quality wide format inkjet printing.
