Machines of Mass Production


So this week is the final push before our end of year exhibition. My friends and I have been set the mammoth task of creating the exhibition catalogues, not the easiest task when you’re using a temperamental Risograph machine! Over 20,000 pages later and we’re well on our way to completing the 40 page publication, which we aim to produce over 400 copies of… Wish us luck!

The main print there is actually from a collage I made and there are a couple there that are from photographs people have taken or drawings they have done πŸ™‚
