Extended Practice

Primarily exploring printed matter this is a documented space of compostion experimentation between image and type treatment. These are solo artworks but also a space for collaboration.

Jacob Lingren in his essay for the publication,‘Extra Curricular’, perfectly contextualises the rationale behind this project:

‘Maybe they’re not successful or viable, but they serve to help us question and think about current structures in place. It’s even unlikely that they will directly change said structures. Often times their most meaningful and tangible result is simply serving as a support structure by which to reflect, research and find solidarity through.

Re-Imaginging Patrick Thomas’ Open Collab Workshop

Always taking part in Patrick’s Open Collab sessions, the idea came about to transfer the digital workshop version back into the original printed matter approach. With the aim of collating a few of my favourite entries from the Open Collab server, I was to risograph print a publication and send out to some of the participants.

Due to restrictions this idea wasn’t materialised beyond it’s intial drafts and with plenty of left-over material the idea came about to include snippets of the prints as part of the Extended Practice project.
