a Study in Moiré

a Study in Moiré

Within the printing business, the moiré effect is mostly considered to be an unwanted effect. This is true, but only regarding the way it is created and used. In some applications, it can be extremely interesting, from an aesthetic point of view. In this study, the manual experimentation on the rotation and placement of the line art and the variation of color produce a feast for the eyes, lively patterns that move and alter as the viewer changes position across them.

Error is Superior to Art

Error is good. It is a unique opportunity to change perspective and see something different from what you know so far. “Error is Superior to Art” is an ongoing print project that attempts to redirect the public’s view and awareness to the value of printing errors and the magnificence intrinsic in them. In this version a distorted scan of the motto is applied on top of few of the Moiré prints. The layers blend uniquely creating even more random beauty.
