As you may be aware the Digital Centre has been going through a number of major changes under the guidance of Peter Hatzipavlis. These include a complete overhaul of the workflow associated with fine art Giclee Printing. A new printing RIP, revision of papers and a new printer have been implemented in order to offer outstanding quality and consistent results with quicker turnaround times. Stay tuned for the latest on these! Another exciting aspect will be to offer the printing services to the broader community, particularly the art community. There are a number of projects already in progress and Peter has recently completed a project with Sanja Pahoki, consisting of three 100 x 150cm photographic Type C Prints from colour negative film. The three images and a cool-white neon were made for the exhibition, Dis-covery, which is part of the ‘Ten Days on an Island’ Festival opening on the 25th March in Hobart, Tasmania. Dis-covery is an exhibition that broaches three ideas: island life, artistic romanticism and romantic ideas of islands and island culture. The images were conceived and made during Sanja’s recent 3-month Australia Council residency on Suomenlinna, which is an island off the coast of Helsinki, Finland.
