Inkt Vis Inkt
The development for this Inkt Vis Inkt generative art print began in the summer of 2022, when Alex got to work with a Riso printer for the first time. Taking a mix of hand-made and found spots, stripes and other simple shapes to make the master, he used black ink on a range of different papers, experimenting with taping separate sheets together, folding and re-printing.
The edges of each rectangle have code-generated Riso-esque edges (as opposed to a completely clean ones) and each rectangle has a little random nudge to suggest the imperfect registration when re-printing onto an existing Riso print. As the Inkt Vis Inkt runs, the developing image provides feedback to the code. As new content from the library of Riso prints is added, its colour reacts to the section of the image already underneath it. Inkt Vis Inkt is Dutch for cuttlefish ink (sepia).
