Human Printer Mk II

So here is one of my final experiments, entitled “The Human Printer”.  An earlier version can be seen here, where I split up sections of an image and had them drawn by 10 people to come together and complete a full print.

I decided to take the idea further and mimic more closely a printer works, dividing an image up into four colours and assigning a sort of colour layer for each one. Each participant would then be a pixel in my printer.

I made 12 stamps, each of which represented a certain size and colour of dot for its user to print. On the bottom of each stamp was a letter, which referred each person to specific points upon which to stamp and leave their mark.

The most difficult part of designing this process was choosing a suitable image to get 12 people to print.

Jimmy said to me, “it should be your face”. I said “why?” He said “because it should”.

Here’s how it went.
