A Portal Into The World of Printed Matter
The printed page has always been a portal into another world. There is nothing quite like that moment when you first open a new book or magazine, when you feel its weight, catch that inky smell coming off its pages, and run your fingertips over the paper. Today, the screen has become the more prolific medium for information exchange. Instead of flicking pages, we are spending more time scrolling through screens.
The State of Print aims to spark conversations on the place of the printed matter in a digital age. No matter the medium – whether it’s pulp or pixels – our human desire to create, connect and communicate is unceasing.
Learn how to prepare artworks for risograph and how layering affects the colour outcomes as compared to other print techniques. Scan various shapes to form unique artworks, and you’ll even get to bring home a print of your own! No knowledge of art softwares are required.

Themed around The State of Print, this talk aims to examine the role of Print from past to present, and into the future. Through the lens of shifting times, we hope to discuss the contributions which Print has offered to society. Print has a rich history, and is highly adaptable to the 21st century and beyond. Print is not dead, and it will never be. How do we shift with the digitalisation of the current age we are living in, while ensuring the heritage of print culture and excellence remain relevant?
