As a studio practice, Plural is defined by it’s creativity; creativity in ideas and experimention, creativity in questioning our relationship to the world around us. Practice is integral to the development of our craft. As creative problem solvers, the conceptual foundation of any project provides the basis for our experimentation, regardless of the medium, digital or analog.
Over the past 4 years, Plural has evolved from a primarily print based studio to an experience based artistic practice, creating a range of work from touch sensitive business cards to fully immersive installation environments. In this presentation, Plural will guide the audience through their process, a journey of experimentation.
Sonnenzimmer is the Chicago-based art and print studio of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. This proposed project, Warp and Weft: Poster Construction by Sonnenzimmer, is a book exploring the compositional approach, historical influence, and individual story behind 30 of our favorite screen printed posters. Pairing each of the 30 prints chosen for the book with focused writing, we’ll have the opportunity to give insight into our collaborative working process, as well as our thoughts on contemporary visual culture. In addition, each featured poster will be accompanied by a single-color wire frame breakdown of the composition. This break down will help in communicating the role of composition in our work and will function as a talking piece in our text.
