Dung the week of September 16-20, 2019, the IEA changed gears from Electronic Media and Film to the print-shop for a great residency week with Visual Arts AIR, Joseph Moore.
Joseph’s first project was a series of web-cam stills that were turned into bitmap images, these bitmaps were then cut in to maple plywood blocks. In the print shop with IEA Research Admin., Rebekkah Palov rolling ink, and Joseph Moore on the Stienmesse and Stolberg Flatbed Offset Press, a small edition of two sided digital wood block prints were produced from the web-cam images. The prints are planned to be configured into book format. Moore’s other project was a series of three Photopolymer Gravure Prints. Under the expert direction of IEA Co-director Joseph Scheer, negatives were made with the Agfa imagesetter, and developed by IEA research specialist Aodi Liang. In the print shop, printing the plates was a team effort with Aodi Lang setting registration for the paper and plates, IEA Co-director Joseph Scheer took on most of the inking while Joseph Moore ran the press.
