Publishing and images: stamping, engraving, digital printing
The workshop is a place of exploration. It offers students the tools to discover and experiment. The digital and manual practices around publishing and its history address different issues questioning publishing in its relationship to historical and contemporary media: appropriations, detour, materiality, animation…
Using drawing and digital tools (digitization, vectorization, animation, installation, sound), the main publishing tools will be explored. Students will be taught systems for analyzing images (drawn, photographic, cinematographic and sound) through drawing so that they can reinvest them in their own personal writing.
All the different printmaking processes are covered, from the most traditional (xylography, intaglio, intaglio, monotype) to related practices (photogravure, embossing, collagraphy, computer graphics).
