Abstract or Description:

Keynote Speech at the conference RE:PRINT_RE:Present, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.
A kind of created attention deficit disorder seems to operate on us all today to make and distribute images and information at speed. What values do ways of making, which require slow looking, or intensive material explorations have in this accelerated system? How are our perceptions of reality being altered by the world-view presented in the smooth colorful ever morphing simulations that surround us? Why would a time consuming practice like etching have anything to offer in this situation? The limitations of digital technology are often a starting point for artists to reflect on our relationship to real-world fragility. I will be using some example of my own work and that of very recent graduates to look at practices where tactility or dimensionality in a form of hard copy engages with these questions, with reference to the writings of Flusser and Steyerl.
