Fall 2016

You’re paired up with a student across state lines

OK?

You have a partner

You make a screen print

One layer

Edition of 2

An edition of 2

Your partner makes a screen print

One layer

An edition of 2

I collect them from each class

Now what?

Ok let me tell you

Swap

I give you theirs

I give them yours

And then?

Hold on

You add a layer

To their screen prints

One layer

They add a layer to your screen prints

Now we’ve got screen prints that are two layers

OK

Uhh

Feeling good

You can move around a little bit

Are you sitting?

Are you standing?

Don’t forget to hydrate

Alright, then what happens?

We’ve got all these screen prints, they look Amazing

I know

I can see into the future

What do we do?

I travel back across state lines

I give you one of the prints you started with the layer they added

and one of the prints they started with the la- with the la- with the layer you added

Words

And now what do you have?

I don’t know, but it feels good

Two screen prints

One you started, one they started

We came together

It’s Amazing

Wow

Alright

Listen to the lasers

Listen to the robots

Where are we right now?

It’s like, we’re everywhere

The sounds of the world

Wow

Uhh

It’s coming back

Yea
