Photolithography, chinecollé, and digital print
A continued interest in formal rhyme schemes and codes as well as an interdisciplinary exploration of the interweaving of poetry, music and visual arts structures influenced the development and printing of Orchestrations. Scans from two found objects, a 1910 player piano roll of Napoleon’s Last Stand (the title itself foreshadowing the short shelf life of this process) and a 1990’s computer chip board provide the imagery. Each item is a vernacular tool that instigates action in a mechanical device. Both the imagery and the process, the use of photolithography chinecollé over an inkjet print, incorporate traditional and digital techniques in the process of development and execution.
