Quote of the Day
If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.
The Strandbeest is a self-replicating meme, a brain virus. It infects the student's brain. In fact, the Strandbeest abuse students for their reproduction. For two years, this reproduction fell into a flow acceleration. Now, 3D printers produce walking mini Strandbeests.
I'm pretty selective. I generally edit the contact sheets and then do work prints. Because I have my own lab and printers, I can afford the luxury of going through the contact sheets for black-and-white, making up work prints, seeing them big, and honing them down.
I'm interested in humor, and greeting cards just happen to be a perfect medium for my message. They're accessible to everyone, and thanks to all the advances that have been made by environmentally conscientious printers, I can get my message across while keeping my carbon footprint relatively small.
The very quick and high sales of the book caught us off guard, but fortunately we got the second edition from the printers at the end of last week and the shops should now be stocked again.
Learning hath gained most by those books by which the printers have lost.
I use printers to make prints of the images that I am creating. And I try to have that surface kind of replicated in the painting.
Bitmap display is media compatible with dot matrix or laser printers.
We wanted people to 3-D-print anything, not just more 3-D printers.
The people who are getting 3-D printers at home are pioneers, kind of like the people who bought Apple IIs in 1981. Adults are usually the last people to get it. The kids are like, 'Get out of my way, I want at this thing.' They immediately start getting creative.
We got involved with the RepRap Project, a community focused on making 3-D printers that could make copies of themselves and help create a world without money. We started making prototypes.
Long before the first primitive dot matrix printers started cranking out phenomenally ugly text with a resolution marginally better than braille, it's been a basic tenet of printing that words and pictures can be broken into dots. The corollary is this: to get higher quality, you use smaller dots - a process that digital technology makes trivial.
'The Next Wave' started as a drawing for a new silkscreen fine art print. I ended up doing the prints digitally because the water-based inks were better for the environment than the oil based inks. So, I learned about the Epson digital printers to get the image I wanted.
