Awarded to: Professor Stephen Hoskins
Researcher participants: Dr Paul Thirkell, Carinna Parraman, Paul Laidler
INDUSTRIAL COLLABORATORS: Hewlett Packard
Project duration: 1.10.2003-31.03.2007

Project details:

For the fine artist, wide format digital printing promises new potential for the creation of print based artwork. However, although some common ground exists between the industry led function of this technology and aesthetic concerns of the printmaker, to date little has been done to define how it may be effectively employed to incorporate qualities which have become unique to the domain of fine art print.

This project sought to quantify existing methods of processing digital images and develop imaging and colour systems which may assist in broadening the current scope of digitally based printing from a fine art perspective.
