The electropounce machine is a remnant of analog technology in sign painting, used to transfer drawings to billboards or signs. I use it as a drawing method; it burns tiny holes in paper with a spark at high voltage.
I also have access to a full print shop and two experienced and very helpful printing techs, Kelly and Liz.
This is the beginning of a new body of work, hatched at this residency.
