Quite often printmaking paraphernalia has a certain industrial chic or solid dependability that can lift it above mere items of equipment and instead transform inanimate objects into a characters within the studio. This is certainly the case with my Columbian Press with its eagle surveying all below it. However, I feel that my most recent arrival, a new exposure unit, may take time for its more Brutalist inspired design to fit in. I know that the arrival of an over sized light box may not seem that exciting but this marks the beginning of a new phase in the creation of prints within the studio. Giving further flexibility to the artists involved in producing work and greatly improving the speed in which the screens can be processed, the new exposure unit is a vital part of the studio. And maybe, in a way, its monolith like face makes it all that bit more intriguing.
