Bleeding Pixels

Paul Ferragut, Time Printing Machine, 2011

Ferragut's Time Printing Machine creates a pixelated aesthetic that is realized through durational deposits of ink on paper. By using a time based algorythm to drive a mechanical plotter Ferragut has devised a mark making system that optimizes the relationship between material absorption and image rendering. Ferragut explains "The time print device uses blotting paper with Letraset felt-pen. The felt-pen ink bleed in the paper for a duration relative to the grey value of a pixel. Every "time stain" gradually recreates any image in a pointilist style." The work was produced for Ferragut's MA show at London Central St Matins and further info concerning the artists activities can be found here
