Louise Naunton Morgan: The Human Printer, 2008
Various sizes, felt tip on tracing paper

As “The Human Printer”, Louise Morgan offers her services of ‘printing’ images manually. In the same process as for offset printing, the motifs  are separated as CMYK halftones. These grids are then, dot by dot, meticulously transferred onto paper by hand. The motifs dissolve into a coarse technical structure with a washed-out quality that reminds of the approaches to representation invented by pointillists.

Morgan’s indifference toward the motifs that are ordered bespeaks a democratic image regime in her work, which is otherwise encountered only in the production lines of industrial photographic laboratories. At the same time, she makes a new case for technical image production in art, which has been discussed ever since Warhol’s Factory and Benjamin’s ‘The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction’.

This text is taken from the NODE10 catalogue, written by Eno Henze and Marius Watz and edited by Valérie-Françoise Vogt. Please read the introductory curator text for an overview of the exhibition topic.

[...] Louise Naunton Morgan, the “Human Printer”  has been featured on Generator X with her hand ‘printed’ images. She takes images, uses computer technology to split them into their constituent four colours, and then proceeds to use these to lay down each colour by hand (seemingly on trace paper). Composed to look like the tell-tale four colour dot effect from an offset printer, the resulting images hide their very time consuming, one-of-a-kind production method. [...]

Isn’t it ironic that her process of recreating the technique of offset printing by hand is anything but democratic because, though access to the hand is available to anyone (just like our ability to perform labour), we become alienable to our own hand (ability/labour) when we are confronted by the amount of time it was necessary to actualize said painting and the specialized skills necessary to produce such a technique? A technique originally that was ‘democratized’ by being shared in terms of specifications for a machine now removed and isolated from the people by being, now this must be feudalism.

Rain reaches the earth’s surface and,SAE J 2178-4, as runoff, flows over and through the soil and rocks, dissolving and picking up other substances. For instance, if the soils contain high amounts of soluble substances, such as limestone, the runoff will have high concentrations of calcium carbonate. Where the water flows over rocks high in metals, such as ore bodies,ANSI/ASHRAE 40-2002 (RA 2006), it will dissolve those metals. While the original EcoSport sold almost exclusively in Brazil, the n

For example, Bacillus spores respond to changes in relative humidity by expanding and shrinking, changing their diameter by as much as 12 (refs 17, 18, 19, 20). We used an atomic force microscope (AFM) based experiment (Fig. 1c) to determine the energy density of individual spores as they respond to changes in relative humidity.
