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.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
