WERK No.20: GINZA - The Extremities of the Printed Matter

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Crafts for Design / Typography for Design / 2013

We injected a new energy into the creation of a set of books, with the aim of heavily distressing them to the point of destruction. Inks and oils were collected from the actual printing process and later used to stain the books, creating unusual colours, textures and scents. We recorded the techniques and intricacies explored in our attempts to push the boundaries of print. Details that are invisible to the naked eye are magnified to reveal the process of finding the perfect imperfect balance. Our motivation is to find humanity, permanence and perfection in a world that has gone digital.
