How Ink Writes Poetry

How Ink Writes Poetry


Lead Graffiti often utilizes spontaneity as a design components. As a part of the process of cleaning our Vandercook presses after a run, we will pour solvent onto the inked rollers and pull sheets of paper through the rollers to remove 80% the ink as fast and quickly as possible. Interesting "ink pulls" started piling up and suddenly a project fell out of them. This is "how ink would write poetry."
