Block Printing

The color prompt for Block Printing in 3250 is Contrast of Extension. Contrast of Extension is the contrast of the amount of one color against another. It is used to generate color and pattern. We explore block printing as a fluid approach to pattern-making. The blocks are simple shapes meant to be printed in a variety of directions to create multiple patterns that energize the negative space between them.
