Still working on these 0s and 1s.
So last weekend I had a few friends over, including an artist friend (sculptor) named Anna. I was showing them how moku hanga works, demonstrating with one of the blocks from my Mecca print. Anna got it right away, of course. She asked a few questions, was quiet for a moment, and then she said, "That's crazy. That's insane. Why don't you just do it on the computer?"
It is crazy. I guess that's why I'm doing it. I love the fact that I'm not doing it on the computer. I love the fact that it takes a gajillion hours to make these 0s and 1s. It's uneconomical, it's crazy, it's positively counter-cultural. I feel like a quiet revolutionary.
