Lego Letterpress

During experimenting with different forms of printing, initially letterpress and wood block, I began to experiment by introducing new elements into my printing process, and the Lego letterpress was born

As part of my Honours project we had to create work for external markers to come in and have a feel for what we were doing, and to allow people around our building to have a small preview of our ideas of what our degree show will showcase.

My main self initiated brief is:

“My honours project will be focussing on the theme of ‘Is Sameness Overrated?’, inspired by past work of Stefan Saigmeister.

Through exploring this theme I will look at different ideas which work within this theme. Through research and development, I will look at different mediums and formats which would allow me to portray my findings and my final work.

I will be looking at work which is both ‘same’ as well as ‘different’, and looking into design history and what has come before, and what may come in the future.

I will also look at different artists who have also identified this theme, and their work they have produced.”

So I created this:

The idea behind the peice was to mix the Sameness, grid structure, 1m x 1m scale, and push pins, with difference, rough textured board and imperfect push pins.

It also allowed me to push myself away from the sameness of approach that I would normally do, of something printed

(and if anyone is curious, there’s just short of 4000 push pins)

Process Book

Selected pages of my process book for my honours project.

The book serves as the ‘glue’ of my project, describing the processes I went through throughout the year, as well as illustrating them with photos

My parents moved to Bulgaria in June, in July I went out there for 5 weeks, here are some snaps!

Canon 100
Various Fuji and Kodak films

CircleCircleCircle

A one colour, gold, print on black BFK paper. The design is built up completely of tiny little dots (halftones).

The digital version pales in comparison to the screen print as replicating the shimmering gold is difficult.

A little behind the print / future series:


“It’s the start of an exhibition series which I’m looking to finish off. The idea behind it came from experimenting with halftones when I did my ‘Deery Me’ print, and wanted to see where I could push it to. Mix that with my slight obsession with geometric shapes and that’s what got it started. Hoping to have them all finished by the end of the year”
