This morning's session speaker was Paul Coldwell (UK), who spoke on
My favourite example was the Richard Hamilton ‘tyre’ series,
Hamilton's Five Tyres Remoulded portfolio included a text
reporting its own research and development (as it were)
and discussed his fascination with an illustration from a 1951 issue of
'Technique et Architecture' which showed the development of tyre treads from 1902-50.
Each one is interesting by itself
but seeing them as a series or 'set' of images provides a greater context,
such as 'seven deadly sins' or an alphabet.

Screenprint, edition of 30, from set of 7.
It challenged me to think about how prints may be read as a series or group
and how that may add to it's value and narrative.
