Black Stuff We Put on Paper

Bubble wrap has endless uses. The nearly irresistible call to pop each bubble and a love for relief printmaking led to a fantastic project with an interesting look at user experience. Most framed art pieces are designed to be viewed only, but what is the fun of a bubble wrap print if you can’t hear how it was made? Each print was created slightly differently and the sound recorded, resulting in four different prints each with it’s own sound. Viewers were invited to share in the experience by listening to the different prints and noticing the difference in sound.

The four-print piece was untitled and was part of a gallery show titled “Black Stuff We Put on Paper”, focusing on printmaking and featuring the work of myself, Andrew Krahn, and Rebecca Sharkey.
