“No medium is as efficient as graphic work, because in it everything can be combined. For the printer graphic is crossover: printing on an earlier print. Take for example the trunk of a tree. First there is the veneer lathe: it reveals the interior of the tree as a pattern on a wooden sheet. Like the pages of a book these sheets are stacked together to form a board of plywood. On this book we printed a cover. Printing on building materials has major advantages. You can use a tablecloth to reinforce the table. For Rik we made printed trophies, which stand on the mantelpiece without additional support. Or on a rack. Joist hangers have perforations. The carpenter doesn’t know but the pattern qualifies as graphic work. Fold the steel braces and you can use it to support a tabletop instead of joists.”
