History of Color Printing

Making Color in a Way That Is Not Like a Long Drive through a Corn Field

Our lives are lived mainly on screen now. Many of us spend upwards of 10 hours a day staring at fields of RGB pixels that look like hand-held versions of giant, flat cornfields. Hours and hours of driving through flat, monotonous, tall, green corn stalks is not that different from hours and hours of Zoom meetings.

Artist Clifton Meador presents some of the history of color printing — since media archeology is a useful way of reframing current technology — and offers some practical approaches to making color for hand printmaking processes, such as risography.

Of course, the irony of delivering this content via the screen is acute, but Meador also offers participants a PDF of a booklet that delivers similar content.
