This year I am the visiting artist at Iona College. This time we used the press to transfer photocopies onto paper. Some of the pictures we used came from my zombie illustration research for a writers festival project “Street Reads” Curious collages emerged, from which ideas evolve and dissolve. To me this process of exploratory image making can lead to uncharted ideas and unusual image making. One discovery we made was how the photocopies react to the water based etching inks. The toner resists the ink, creating ghost like negatives.
