Blurring a border begins with first light

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


Blurring a border begins with first light imagines the repetitive routine of a soldier performing his daily duty to blur the border in print. It begins with a black and white image of debris washed by the flood and transforms through various printing techniques. From digital to analogue gestures, all traces appear on the 25 unique prints, as colour becomes an element of tracing.

Blurring a border begins with first light was exhibited at the 2016 Print Awards, the centrepiece of the International Print Biennale and the showcase for the most exciting artists working in print right now from across the world. Following an international call for artists, this exhibition, taking place across three venues, presents the work of 31 artists chosen from over 780 entries.The international selection panel for 2016 Print Awards were Christiane Baumgartner, David Cleaton-Roberts and Sune Nordgren.
