“We are a Pro Printing Press Society”
Clay Shirky’s TED talk is about what happens when a medium brings a lot of new ideas into circulation. His main point centers on the internet and how open source programmers have developed a way of interacting with ideas in a non-hierarchical way.
In the first five minutes of his talk he touches on one of the most powerful characteristics of printmaking, its ability to circulate ideas. Take a look at this talk for a reminder of how printmaking is a potent medium with a long history of facilitating social change.Bookmark / Share / Print
