Printmaking + Urban Flows

As a component of Waterlogged we used printmaking to explore ideas related to layering and flow in city conditions. The movement of elements—people, water, air, sound—create currents through the landscape that are changed and interrupted as they react to the physical disruptions created by city infrastructure. The prints are based on a series of urban observation drawings (previous posts) in which students documented these less representational elements of the landscape. These drawings served as an analogous departure point for altering the plates. The images emerged through the process of exploring conditions where flow and urban form collide.
