A Computer in the Art Room: the origins of British computer arts 1950-80 by Catherine Mason

This book documents the early days of digital exploration by artists. This interests me, because I am very interested in where print concedes the role of dispersal to digital media.
The book can be bought from Catherine Mason's website.

Squaredance - a print performance

For starters here is one of my pieces......

‘Squaredance’ 2009 – Assemblage: wood with moving parts, paper & ink, accessories and printed paper.

A multi faceted piece comprising of different elements: ‘First matter’, the ideographic square and circle.

A printing device that never replicates exactly.

A performance that like the matrix (mother) manifests the fecundity of print and digital dispersal processes. The performative nature of the virtual image and the real image is compared and explored.

I would like to collect together here some projects, pieces, photos & videos that take printmaking outside the confines of editions and the 'print' as a commodity. I would welcome contributions both visual and textual.
I have found some interesting footage on Youtube by various artists, see "playlist" alter printmaking on my YouTube channel......
