When the first xerox was invented they could not have known that this was the beginning of a revolution in the is cheapest & most democratic form of printing. the free press self published zines broadsides experimental poetry bands & mail artists would all benefit from this clever & useful little machine
without it todays artistic landscape would look very different .
now flash forward 50+ years into the 21st century how many artists are still exploring
playing stretching manipulating & pushing to breaking point the almost limitless potential of this xeros (dry) graphic (writing )?
more than once have I heard or read the question "what is copy art ?"
electrostatic research & revelations are alive & well ...
this is the place to share them

Great video on copy art!  Thanks for sharing.  Reminds me of when I first got involved with those magic machines in the 70s at work.  Before that, I played with a mimeograph machine in high school.  Naively, since they're work machines, I thought I was the only one doing something other than just for business purposes.

Found this lovely 1990 video on xerox/copy art!

Lots of cool examples of work produced and techniques!
