The printing medium performs the act of duplication, and letterpress, more so than other fine art printing mediums, allows for speed of printing. Multiples in fine art have, by the very nature of repetition, the power to exaggerate and suggest consumption, oppression, even bliss or the sublime. Unlike an edition of multiple prints or objects for the purpose of resale, the multiple in fine art can also create a place for audience participation and social engagement, using interactive elements that perform various duties. Whether you’re amassing, distributing or destroying multiples—this project asks you to consider how the use of multiplicity can inform the meaning of your work.
