    Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation

    Description

    This research presents the cutting-edge use of digital print technology as an
    experimental tool for the designer, where the printer effectively becomes the
    paintbrush, palette and dye vessel; the creative medium. This paper will examine a
    new approach to ink jet printing which enables, rather than hinders, a hands-on
    creative approach to digital printing, opening up the possibilities for placement of
    design and the potential for manipulated surfaces to be fed through the printer.
