For a fourth year on a row Topo Copy teamed up with Helix and Het Miat (Museum of Industrial Archaeology and Textiles Ghent) to make giant prints, not on a press but on concrete with a steamroller, a type of heavy construction machinery used for flattening/compacting surfaces, such as roads or airfields. During a two-day-event the artists carved lino's and printed them on ‘flags’, paper and even clothing.
This year's special - the DIY corner where people could carve & print their own work on a table proof presses, was a success. Especially amongst kids.
The active member of steamroller printing group Carlos Rivero Prats came up with and an idea of action printing (on the right).
Another special of this year, the giant book (+40kg!) of prints from the previous edition was absolutely impressive! I've made the cover and the back of the book and Laurence De Craene managed to bind the A0 size pages in a beautiful book with a matching red cloth & funky stitches. We all loved it!
