Why prints are awesome!
In series 1 episode 7, co-hosts Ann Shafer and Ben Levy talk about prints and printmaking, and evangelize about how wonderful prints are, why they are different and special, why it takes work to get over the hump of understanding technique to get to content. They discuss how technique can inform meaning, how the translation of an image from one surface to another only adds interest and conceptual rigor, and the ins and outs of multiplicity.
