Umbrella

letterpress artist book, edition of 25 split v.e.
3D printed type cast with plastic
11.5 cm X 15 cm
Hand printed and bound at the Banff Centre, 2015

This project is completed at the Banff Centre during the Thematic residency: Truth, Lies and Lore in 2015.

This edition of the artist’s book is created in memory of the Umbrella Movement (2014) in Hong Kong, symbolized in this book by the embossed umbrella on each copy.  This edition is split into 2 versions; [a] and [b], each consisting of a complementary set of 20 images. The images in each version are randomized and unique. A complete set of images can only be obtained by collecting both versions that are part of this edition. The type is printable on letterpress.

Line works are hand-traced from media and press photographs of the event, then exposed as polymer plates, printed on tracing paper using letterpress, and hand-bound by the artist and staff at the Xerox Printshop at the Banff Centre. Overlaying imagery on semi-transparent paper creates a unique perspective for each page as it turns to the next. The plastic type object, casted from a 3D printed ornament, was used to emboss the book cover and print inside the book.

或許我們無法看見事物的全貌,或許我們無從探究時間的真實。
所謂的真相,所謂的相信,
或許會被篡改,或許會被污辱,或許會隨波逐流而去。
我無法看見事物的全貌,我無從探究時間的真實,
但我能夠刻下事物的本質,讓它能亙久佇立於鴻流之中。
如此純粹,無比直率,單單的事實。
就如點、就如線。
勾劃出的只單是一組粒子在這個四維空間曾經的存在。

An additional postcard series is printed for Outside the Envelope // Letters from Home @ Alberta Printmaker’s Society, 2016.
