The Constitution of Moiré / Silkscreen Print

    The Constitution of Moiré

    Within the printing business, the moiré effect is mostly considered to be an unwanted effect. This is true, but only regarding the way it is created and used. In some applications, it can be extremely interesting, from an aesthetic point of view. In this study, the manual experimentation on the rotation and placement of the line art and the variation of color produce a feast for the eyes, lively patterns that move and alter as the viewer changes position across them. 

  • Error Is Superior To Art

    Error is good. It is a unique opportunity to change perspective and see something different from what you know so far. “Error is Superior to Art” is an ongoing print project that attempts to redirect the public’s view and awareness to the value of printing errors and the magnificence intrinsic in them. In this version a distorted scan of the motto is applied on top of few of the Moiré prints. The layers blend uniquely creating even more random beauty. 

  • Overprint-Misprint
    Many printers’ fetish, the visual flaws and the random combinations, reversed to push the idea of error even further, in a small collection of overprints, possibly waiting for new visuals to lay atop them. 
    Each Moiré print comes with a 50 x 70 cm print on transparent pvc sheet with the original pattern used for creating your own final synthesis of the poster.
