In September, CP7 researcher Ludovic Gustafsson Coppel from Gjøvik University College visited the University of the West of England, Bristol, and Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, Darmstadt, as part of his secondments. The aim of the visit was to model the light reflection from layered materials in two different applications: multi-layered coloured prints with inkjet printer to improve colour output of original artwork (in collaboration with ESR Melissa Olen in Bristol) and colour management in 3D colour printing.
Early September, CP7 researcher Teun Baar from Océ Print Logic Technologies visited the University of the West of England as part of his secondment. During the secondment, relief stamps were made for the application of relief printing. The stamps were created using 3D printers and wood engraving machines. The aim of the research was to compare the limitations and advantages of each of the processes and suitability to creating Chiaroscuro relief prints.
We are happy to inform that the abstract submitted by CP7 researcher Melissa Olen has been accepted for an oral presentation at the Image Conference 2014 in Berlin, Germany. This oral presentation will provide Melissa with an opportunity to submit a full paper to their journal “The International Journal of the Image” which is a peer reviewed journal.
The fifth training event (TE5) was held at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK and the National Gallery, London, UK, on April-May (27 – 2) 2014. The event was attended by all the research fellows as part of the training program in the CP7.0 project.
The training focused on exploring beyond the boundaries of the current state of digital printing and colour management, with emphasis on print application and knowledge transferability between the arts and sciences. For more details please click here.
Melissa Olen has recently returned from the IMPACT8 International Printmaking Conference in Dundee, Scotland. Apart of the panel discussion “Transversing Print Media”, Melissa discussed her research on “Artist influenced approaches for colour reproduction in inkjet printing”.
