This dynamic approach to print encourages experimentation and innovation within traditional and emerging print media. Practices from woodcuts to zines, commercial printing to the digital tools of mass media are all encouraged in our department. It is the space where artists engage with the materials and technologies of reproduction, with a value placed on experimentation and process. Rooted in the concept of democratic media—from Gutenberg to internet memes—Print Media prizes collaboration and diverse forms of dissemination in contemporary art and culture.
Challenge begins in the studio. Each student that enters the department should have a high level of self-motivation to create work, a restless curiosity about self and world, the maturity to handle the interface of life and creative practice, and be willing to work with others for mutual artistic growth within a constructive but demanding learning environment.
