Arms & Weapons began with scanned pages from a collaged journal made in India in 2004. It was combined with a photograph of an Indian woman to create the digital file on the right. To make a final print reminiscent of the journal, two sheets of handmade brown Indian bagasse, shipped from India, were adhered to a sheet of Arches Infinity 24” x 32”. The outer edges have heavy deckles, the center is cut and butted as in book pages.
The file was printed on the Vutek PressVu UV 200/600, a flatbed printer which prints on surfaces up to 1.75” thick.
