Printer Prosthetic: Futura

In collaboration with

Federico Pérez Villoro, Roxana Fabius, and Siyao Zhu

2017 9 x 6in. Perfect Bound Book, Modified Inkjet Printer

Published by Printed Matter, Printer Prosthetic: Futura is conceived as an “experimental reprint” of artist, publisher, and printer Hansjörg Mayer’s seminal Futura (1965–1968), a series of twenty-six artworks each published as a folded, single-page pamphlet. Using this collection of Concrete and Fluxus works as a starting point, Printer Prosthetic: Futura re-interprets the poems by means of mechanical mediation, outputting the originals through a set of controlled and chance operations.

Made with support from Printed Matter's Emerging Artists Publication Series 2016 award.
