That's a lot to think about. There will be numerous panel discussions and demonstrations of printmaking techniques. An artist named Chris Flynn will be doing a demonstration of "digital print through press" which interests me a lot since my current work is about taking digital prints and doing traditional printing on top of them. E.C. Cunningham will be doing photo-intaglio/collagraph monoprints, which seems particularly connected to the theme of the conference. I hope to see that demonstration as well. Art Werger will be doing color mezzotints, which I'm sure will be an interesting process. He's a very meticulous printmaker.
The panel discussions are rich with provocative topics and I wish it were possible to attend them all, but I'll have to pick and choose. Those of particular interest are: The Role of Classical Practices in the Digital Age, Teaching Critical Thinking in Print, and A sense of space.
