THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY SCREEN PRINT EDITIONS
In 2009, following on from my Fine Art M.A degree show (2005-2007) where gaming became analogous with existential queries & games controllers became a leitmotif for freewill / the concept of game design a signifier for determinism - I produced a series of screen prints of the 1980s space invaders game Astrowars after finding a working model at a local car boot sale. Filled with nostalgia and calling to mind various issues of mass production and consumption, the image of the game presented itself as a composite of a take home universe where our childish imaginations projected all of time and space into this small contained machine. From my own photographs of the game I developed a four colour screen print. I also ran an edition with just three colours. There are three versions in total - see photographs above, on one edition there was a piece of tape blocking the black (see centre image - right of circle circumference) but I rather liked the random effect it gave - although this was corrected in the remaining run - I also did a run of five prints without any black as the layering of the colours was so spectacular!
The title is a phrase from Corinthians that seems to describe the image perfectly - not seeing things clearly - only a faint impression of the potential that is out there - which is like our knowledge of space, which is gradually being clarified.
THE PRINTS ARE ON A2 PAPER WHICH MEASURES 42 x 59.4cm (A2)- THE PRINT AREA IS c 20 x 20cm
THESE ARE HAND PULLED PRINTS SO NO TWO PRINTS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. Some have irregularities, where for example the print has aligned differently causing a riot of colours at the edge - please discuss whether you are after a more exact print when ordering.
Recently inspired by Elon Musk's proposed ventures towards Mars with Spacex, the mammoth step of manufacturing re-usable rockets extending humanity’s reach into space - overlapped with Dogecoin's equally positive outlook & its projected interaction with space travel and fun - it seemed wholly appropriate that this was the moment to trial using DOGECOIN as an exchange token for these artworks on early astral gaming.
The first five prints to be sold using Dogecoin will be available at a trial price of 420 DOGE + the shipping cost of the print in a secure cardboard tube to your destination (eg shipping to the USA is about 290 DOGE with tracking & insurance).
Thereafter the price will rise...
Sales will be agreed initially by email enquiry to info @ louisiem . com or DM me @titch_de_ronvo and with payment being made directly through MYDOGE wallet. Once I have given you my wallet address, you will have a limited time of 24 hours to make payment, otherwise the limited sale price will be open to others. NO BOTS or time wasters please :)
