About the Piece
An ode to two icons of electricity – HAL 9000, and the body of work that Jacob Jensen did for Bang & Olufsen. The high-end bling of minimalist product design in beautifully engineered materials he designed seemed like a dip into the future in the 1980’s. These pieces are a celebration of the luminescence of fluo ink on white paper, and the contrast of metallic and gloss ink to flat/matt layers.
About the Artist
Alastair is a graphic design graduate of NCAD and the Royal College of Art. He’s worked as a designer, and design educator, for far too long to dwell on. Interested in process and materiality in printmaking, he’s previously worked in letterpress, but returned to screen printing in 2017.
Often found devising an image-making technique, and then discovering ways to undermine, abuse, and subvert it. Loves a happy accident. Disinterested in rigorous adherence to consistency in a world of perfect reproduction. Which is convenient.
