For a while now printer ink is probably the most expensive liquid per litre on earth. Still we need our images so badly that we accept this fact. The Human Printer manages to make it even more expensive (although for now it's free). Watch how it works and view the different printer models.

Bummer. I've been working on this same project for a year now. I think it's more about the relationship between artistic media (ie painting, photography, digital imaging, and printmaking) more than about the man v. machine thing. And if you care for the academic side, I could write an essay about the glitch and the revelation of the process, understanding the medium, etc. For now I'll go wallow in an artistic funk.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
