the print factory
_development and implementation
research and teaching: contemporary graphics archive
Ever since the establishment of the research group, a selection of the most interesting graphic works made by postgraduate students from the Faculty of Fine Arts has been compiled under the title "The Print Factory".
- New didactic methodologies
- Application of scientific-research methodology to university teaching.
- Cataloguing and dissemination of cross-border contemporary graphic works (art and technology). Redefinition of the research-teaching binomial
The objective of this Estampa Contemporánea Bureau is to document how the main line of the dx5 research group, focused on fusion of new technologies and traditional graphic techniques, has materialised into the transfer of these results through their application in teaching. It compiles and shows the fruit obtained, both at technical and creative level, as a result of the application of research to teaching graphics at the Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Vigo.
This Print Factory research project is a young dissemination and educational innovation project in the field of contemporary graphics that has a profound impact on the value of social communication and on publicity of the research and didactic work of the dx5 group.
_CONCLUSIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Two "Print Factory" publications: "The Print Factory I" and "The Print Factory II" have come into existence as a direct result of this project. The book space focused on the artist's book. The book compiles the best prints included in this file and permits international export and dissemination of the work. It simultaneously documents the activity and allows this dynamic feedback to perpetuate among the brightest future students.
