ARTS 206- 2D Media


Studies February 5, 2019

Project Title: Mapping II Keywords: Conceptual mapping/


charting/ personal geographies Media: Printmaking as
Drawing Dimensions: 11 x 15 inches Grade Weighting:
35%

Project Description: Mapping Identity II allows students to explore the notion of a


series using the same conceptual content but with new or related imagery and media.
In this project, students will once again explore layered drawing through multi-plate
printmaking using hand drawn dry-point and laser- cut acrylic plates.

Students will explore the mixing and application of inks, investigating a variety of color
schemes. Students will learn to how to use the intaglio printing press and the laser
cutter, and acquire the skills of printing on diverse surfaces such as paper and fabric.

Project Deadline: Proof -dry-


point: February 21 Proofs -laser
+ multi-plate: March 5 Final
submission: March 8

Conceptual Statement: Although most commonly used to depict geography maps may
represent any space, real or imagined, with or without regard to context or scale. Maps
tell stories; they can be described as a visual representation or documentation of a
physical, spiritual, real or metaphorical place/ location, area, emotion or time. Maps can
be symbolic depictions highlighting relationships between people, elements of space
such as objects, regions, and themes. They could also augment metaphoric
associations related to exploration and documentation, along with experience and
memory.

The resultant works will be a collaborative atlas containing personal maps, illustrations,
graphic analysis, tables, charts and plates that systematically illustrate a particular subject
related to mapping and documentation from within each artist’s desired exploration.
Subject matter can include but not be limited to: cultural traditions and expectations;
globalization and it’s affects; extinction, migration and immigration; the mapping of genetic
links; mapping and documenting their personal journey through metaphor and thus
creating and conserving the society’s cultural memory.

Students are requested to use mapping or charting as a way to explore their individual
subject matter, documenting their personal journey through metaphor. Students are
encouraged to use Google maps, GPS coordinates, old maps and imaginative maps or
charts as inspiration to convey their ideas.

Materials Resources While most of the materials are being provided for this project,
students may wish to explore additional media for experimentation. Each student will be
supplied with a set number of consumables (paper and acrylic sheets) which should
suffice for the project providing they are used wisely. We will also provide shared
consumables for the studio (inks, acrylic mediums, tape, yes paste, hand cleaner, oil
and vinegar for clean-up, disposable gloves, rags, and some newsprint etc). If students
require additional resources, they will need to purchase these items.
Borrowing Tools We will be lending each of you an etching needle to do this project.
This is university property, but should you wish to purchase one, you may through the
Winthrop University Marketplace or online at the below link. All borrowed tools will be
checked out at the start of the project and must be returned when handing in the project
on March 8 or prior. Students who lose their tools will need to replace them prior to
receiving a grade, by purchasing one at the below link: https://www.dickblick.com/products/etchingdrypoint-

Paper Intaglio printmaking methods require soaking paper in water and putting it under
the pressure of the printing press. As such, we need to use a specific type of paper to
print on, that can withstand this. There are many wonderful hand and machine-made
printmaking papers on the market in a variety of colours and forms. We are using Lenox
100, and economical paper that costs $2.50 per sheet (22 x 30”) and it is machine
made. We will bring experimental paper and material to class for students to experiment
with, but students are requested to purchase these items if they wish to explore them
beyond this. Item Number: 60430 Lenox 100 https://www.graphicchemical.com
Karen Oremus https://mlgcourseswu.weebly.com/2d-media-studies-arts-206.html
Even though we have these items in the studio, you should have this as part of
your general tool kit:
Scissors, Pencils Pens Apron/ Lab coat Hand cleaner Xacto Knife Reusable or
disposable gloves Ruler Brushes Masking Tape/ Tape Oil and Vinegar for safe
cleaning Bring in Newspaper/ Old Phone Books/ newsprint
Rags
