FRIEND, YOU STAND ON SACRED GROUND...
THIS IS A PRINTING OFFICE
Drop in at any time to our workshop – an experimental digital print room within
The Northern Charter project space & library.
In the spirit of a famous broadside by Beatrice Warde (1900-1969), celebrating the eloquence and power of the printed word: digital collages will be developed by Giles Bailey & studio-holders CIRCA Projects with collaborators visiting the print room each day.
Visitors are welcome to spend time browsing research content, videos and a specially curated reading room. Then work with Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects to re-imagine archival images, texts, and video as digital posters in Photoshop.
These visuals will be projected onto a sculptural stage-set made by artist Eleanor Wright: an installation changing with the course of the workshops. These poster designs will then be printed and distributed around Newcastle in venues, cafes and bars – acting as footnotes for future artworks to be developed by Giles Bailey & CIRCA Projects for the North East.
