Here’s a couple of photographs from an epic day of screen-printing, Roger of Justseeds and Heather of Flight 64 cranking out hundreds of individual letters for Katherine Ball’s (of SEA Change gallery in Portland) banner project.
Here’s Katherine’s blurb:
SEA Change is hosting banner making workshops for the Climate Change March in Copenhagen, Denmark. During the workshops, participants will decide what the banners should say by selecting handmade letters from a preprinted stockpile and sewing them together. These banners will be carried in the Dec. 12 Climate Change March. Letters for the banners were printed in Portland, Oregon by Heather McLaughlin of Flight64, Roger Peet of Justseeds, and Katherine Ball of SEA Change. The letters will be sewn into banners at Betonsalon in Paris, France, Klimaforum09 in Copenhagen, and at the Yes Men’s Copenhagen Headquarters: Gallery Poulsen. If you have a phrase in mind, please email it to email@example.com. In January, the banners will be displayed at Apex Art in New York City as part of the Incidental Person exhibit. A presentation will also be given in Portland.
