New Wave: Centre for Fine Print Research

After Light will be on show at the Centre for Fine Print Research in Bristol during the IMPACT Printmaking Conference.

Curated by Sarah Bodman & Tom Sowden, 'New Wave - Demonstrating examples of concepts and formats of artists publishing', is part of a two-year AHRC funded research project: What will be the canon for the artist’s book in the 21st Century? In an arena that now includes both digital and traditionally produced artists’ books, what will constitute the concepts of artists’ publishing in the future?

After Light is part book and part light-installation; the 'pages' are enclosed in individual slide viewers.
