Friday Night Flicks: What Is A Print?

Many people find ‘process’ videos relaxing to watch, and since it is summer and a time for relaxing, I have chosen some process videos about printmaking.

The first video is an animation produced by Chop Shop Studio (formerly The Chopping Block) for the Museum of Modern Art, and is an introduction to printmaking.

The four classical printing methods are presented here as interactive animation. The user could choose to actually grab the tools and do each step or simply click continue and watch the screen do the work itself.

The video is no longer interactive —at least not on my devices— but runs by itself.



If you would like to see more of these processes this weekend, The Metropolitan Museum of Art has an excellent set of stop-motion illustrated explanations: What Is Printmaking?
