PRINTING PROCESS

Squeezing a plant fragment between an inked pad against and a piece of paper, the fragment acts like stencil or template, blocking the ink, and resulting in a printed reverse silhouette.

However; the ink blocked by the plant fragment is retained in the pad, and the pressure has displaced the ink in measure — relative to the height, surface variation, and texture of the fragment.

Setting the plant fragment aside and pressing the ink pad onto a clean piece of paper results in an image resembling a micro-photograph or low relief.

By repeating this process, and moving the plant fragments incrementally, the printed sequence can be used for animation.
