Lab Culture: Printmaking Lab


This is the print shrine or
the print altar. And this showed up in this
print lab I think about 2010. So it’s sorta just a fun little object. People pass by it when they’re
coming into the print lab. And we sort of joke around that if you’re
getting ready to print your edition, you make a small offering to the print god,
so people come and add a little trinket. Or you can see a lot of people have
plastered sort of proofs of prints. That’s one of mine from
way back in the day. So even after you print,
if your printing went well you come and thank the gods of printmaking. The print mascot kind of
changes every once in a while. For a long time,
I was making signs with Nic Cage on it. So and then one day I started
making Ross Geller signs. So and then it just sorta stuck. [LAUGH] Fine art printmaking is always
gonna have a place in art. There’s this sort of tactile quality, a hands-on process that you can’t
really get with different processes. It’s very unique.
