Risograph 101 Workshop by ON/OFF
With Dan Dorocic and Michael Maginness
Dan and Michael of ON/OFF will introduce their practice and then run through the basics of what the Riso machine can do.
In the workshop, we will be crafting and printing (A3 format) booklets, posters, calendars or other paper ideas that people bring to the workshop.
The workshop is donation-based to cover basic materials (5 € per person).
If you would like to come, please let us know so we can make sure to have enough supplies for everyone. Send an email with the subject “RISO 101” to firstname.lastname@example.org
ON/OFF is a studio of architects, artists, designers and makers based in Berlin.
As a group we draw on a range of different skills, working collaboratively to initiate new experiments that combine different mediums and skills through mobile structures, film and projection, public workshops and writing. As a group we set out to challenge classic modes of practice and to engage with people’s experience of the city through projects in public space. Some of ON/OFF’s network is based in different cities internationally and come together in new formations based on each project. Since 2012 we have been working on a range of competitions, installation designs and on-site building projects, exploring different fields such as media art, theatre scenography, experimental housing, playgrounds and furniture design. We are producing research in the format of a book on Tactical Urban and Rural Interventions called “Co-Machines: Mobile Disruptive Architectures” in 2017.
