Steamroller Prints

Because it's always fun to run over artwork!

The printmaking students have been working on woodblock prints since the beginning of the semester. Once they were finished, we asked the nice guys working at a construction site on campus to come over and help us print a large composite print of all the blocks by using the steamroller to act as a large printing press. Each block was supposed to depict a part of a larger "machine" (interpreted in any way the students wanted). The resulting composite print was inspired by a Rube Goldberg machine. It was a unique way to explore how to manipulate imagery and work collaboratively. The entire department watched and had a great time!
