When astronauts get cold they turn on the space heater.

As part of printing this big 2×4 foot image, I am working on ceding some control and  encouraging  the art-making to take on a more natural course. I believe there is a hard fought balance to be found that negotiates two competing items I hold to be true:

  1. The reality that without a high degree of control screenprinting doesn’t work at all.
  2. Learning how to surrender to nature is part of my life work doing visual art.

For this project, surrendering control/embracing nature is taking the form of certain decisions such as working with old emulsion that blows out the image randomly.  Here’s some  pictorial  dispatches from the studio I wanted to record.  I think it’s going to look pretty cool when I print it.
