Mark & Measure

—

Utilising the elements which make up typographic measurement revealed is a printed ruler constructed by layering each independent element of the letter-press printing process as a singular image, i.e. by raising the invisible parts (cyan, magenta, and yellow) to the same height as the visible or printable area, i.e. (black).

The print evokes how our relationship with access and authority is conduced, along with how both the communicable and non-communicable factions from which language is constructed are pertinent for understanding not only the pragmatic processes of analogue print-making, but also to distance, time and the equanimity of practice.
