Assignment 1, Transfer to wet paper and identity

Alternative Digital Printing

Summer 2007

Due Monday, May 21st (Start of class)

 

Create and successfully transfer at least three images.  The works must address one of the following and must work together as a group:

  1. Any aspect of your identity
  2. Any other cohesive idea that you would rather work with

 

When making the images, whether you work with the identity theme or your own, consider how the image will speak differently given the process.  During critique you will be asked to explain your theme and evaluate how that idea relates to the process. 

 

PART I

Prepare an image(s) for wet transfer

Choose a transfer substrate

 

As you prepare your image, think about what you are transferring to and if need be, make the image to compliment the substrate.

 

Be prepared to work on any part of this process during class, you will all be at different stages.

 

PART II

Print and Transfer, perhaps re-dp

 

PART III

Finished Images for critique

 

3* (or more if you want) successfully transferred images

 

I would also like to see what lead up to the successful works.

The three may be the same image done in different ways or three different images that work together. During critique, you will be asked to explain your theme and evaluate how that idea relates to the process.

 

* As always, you are encouraged to experiment (i.e., working back in with traditional media).
