The “Origins” lithograph series is based on the frames of a one second VHS video. Its creation process hints at how each frame was originally just a set of electronic signals on a circuit board. For each print, a video frame is first half-toned. Separately, the letterpress-printed shape of an actual VHS circuit board is scanned and a mask is created out of it. Finally, this mask is applied to each half-toned image to create the print. These prints match exactly the size of the main circuit board from an outdated VHS player (9×12″).
The following animated GIF shows the succession of prints in the series. Below them, you can see larger versions of some of the prints from this series.
