A series of riso prints I’ve made during the workshop period at MAKE Eindhoven, to which I was invited by
We selected six young artists to work on the spot: Carlyn Westerink (NL), Fynn van der Ziel (NL), Jiaojiao Li
(CN/NL), Kasper van Moll (NL), Mizuki Kimura (NL), Radek Górniak (PL/NL).
Each year, six talented illustrators and visual artists are given the opportunity to experiment with the
facilities of Make and Wobby's own risoprinter.
Under the watchful eye of Koen Taselaar, they experimented with graphic techniques and the risoprinter.
Deep learning image models were all the rage at the time of the workshop – while initially I’ve dismissed them
as a gimmick infringing on copyright, I got more interested with possibilities of using your own images as
prompts, as opposed to text prompts only.
Trying to regain a sense of (at least partial) authorship, I’ve fed scribbles and hand-made drawings into the
machine. Then I took the images I got and cut-up, collaged and otherwise edited them further, sometimes
repeating the whole process a few times. The last step was translating the digital images into full colour riso
prints, with 4 separate printing layers making up the image.
Exhibited during the Dutch Design Week 2022.
Thanks to MAKE Eindhoven for donating its space & Marjolein Schalk for the invitation.
