This is part of the Vista Sans Wood Type Project (visit vswtp.org for more info.). The print is about our relationship to touch not only in our lives in general, but as artists and viewers. The focus is put on the role of the print as an object and an idea. Our connection to the physical media involved is central. In this piece the wood type is touching the paper and leaving a mark – a bruise. Touch becomes what the print process is doing to the paper and the viewer’s desire to interact with the work on a physical level. The laser cut text is simple and straight forward, yet represents an absence – so the medium is changing how we digest the text.
