‘Printed Matter’ explores some of the dynamic printing collectives that operate in Sydney. Co-existing in their own unique realm, each individual collective offer a fresh take on printed output – the result being a tactile mark on paper whose character flourishes through the unpredictable nature of the machine in operation.
As far as mass produced media is concerned, the collectives diverge from their digital counterparts, through a certain je ne sais quoi that is too often undermined through digital printing processes. Designs are scrutinised to work harmoniously with the method of production, colours are picked by eye from a limited palette and stocks are often painstakingly hand fed. These elements come together to create a unique print that through its idiosyncrasies is truly human.
