One-month Journey

Our first solo show displaying the usual of The Archivist’s screen-printing process through quotidian documentation. During a period of one month, details are archived to manifest laziness which some might take as diligent, or lay out coincidental mistakes that might appear to be wise in some people’s opinion. 

12 x A1 original screenprints, small test charts, process and a journal

The Archivist — business card

The latest business cards of our studio designed as a small test chart of lines, dots and angles for 1/1-colour screenprinting with 140T mesh at 22.5° on assorted papers.

Polarization prints

My screen-prints as part of THE PRINTERS’ PRINTS exhibition
The way to achieve the print was planned ahead involving gradation printing from three different directions with transparent inks. As a result, each print from the editions is a unique print that will never duplicate each other.

40 Minutes of a melting ice cube

A screenprint documenting one melting ice cube in a room temperature of 25°c shot every minute during 40 minutes time. When observed closely, we will see the ice slowly change. All the liquid that once freezed inside start to move, bubbles floating upward. The object that seemes dry at first is gradually self-coating and transforming into shiny liquid. This print is achieved by printing the highlight parts of the ice with white ink to emphasize the changing state of matter. As in reality, before noticing anything, the ice was already gone.

Composition of solid ice cubes — monoprint series

This monoprint serie were made from two printing plates of different ice cubes. The idea of the print is based on the nature of ice cubes in a container through papers’ boundaries, conveying temporary solidity of ice. All ice cubes look similar and are actually duplicates of the original two molds, thus being obscured by placement and the unevenness of hand-printing, making each ice cube unique like the real ones made from an ice tray — different and beautiful.
