One of the main themes of the Residency is Memories. For the Future Publishing and Printing, the act of printing ink on paper is one of the best means of creating and preserving memories in a form that can be shared between people.
During the Residency period, RISO Kagaku will sponsor two Goccopro 100s allowing for a series of 6 print making workshops. These workshops will be held in the dedicated print room.
The focus of these workshops is combining contemporary methods (the Goccopro) with traditional Japanese washi.
