Faculty Lane Cooper
This intermediate/advanced studio course offers an exploration in printmaking, considering the digital matrix for computer-aided and hand-pulled prints through processes redefined in the digital age, scrutinizing decisions for information in and information out, and the relationship to those decisions. Students will be challenged to work in the territory of digital media in relationship to and combination with traditional print medium. Students have the opportunity to create files for output which are hand drawn, digitally generated, of a photographic nature, or a combination of all three. Topics include transfer methods, digital production of plates, color management for wide-format digital printing, photolithography, and exploration of media choices to project ideas. Technical and critical discussion in this course will be informed by the presentation of processes that have been developed over the past few decades, and how these developments relate and affect print culture today. Open elective. Encouraged for third/fourth year students. Required for third-year Print majors.
