In episode 107, Ann and Ben turn to prints and printmaking. They evangelize about how wonderful prints are, why they are different and special, why it takes work to get over the hump of understanding the technical prior to comprehending content. They discuss how technique can inform meaning, how the translation of an image from one surface to another only adds interest and conceptual rigor, and the ins and outs of multiplicity.
