Dancing with the machine

Valerie’s research for this letterpress residency has taken her on a journey. Through her family heritage and the idea that standardisation can cause loss of information, to the role of words and word plays. Exploring scale, the rhythm of repetition and seeking to perfect the act of printing on the Farley press, ‘atemzug’ is the unravelling of this thinking process.
