Using Risograph Printmaking for Experimental Animation
This project explores Risograph printmaking as a medium for animation. It was first popularized in 1980s Japan, and its function is often described as a mix between screen printing and photocopying, as it can only print one color at a time. Re-popularized by a new wave of small press artists, the Risograph has emerged as a new modern medium. I will be creating a frame-by-frame animation printed on the Risograph, carefully scanning each frame onto my computer. As part of my documentation and research, I will make a a series of short Risograph animation experiments, flip books, and other printed matter.
