A co-authored article by all the artists for Imprint journal, Australia, September 2012. Sarah Bodman and Paul Laidler from the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) at UWE, Bristol, UK joined Tim Mosely in Brisbane at Queensland College of Art (QCA, Griffith University, Brisbane ) after the Impact 7 Multi-disciplinary Printmaking Conference in Melbourne in October last year. Tom Sowden and Monica Oppen collaborated by sending instructions from (CFPR) Bristol and Sydney respectively. Our brief was to explore the concepts of the urban jungle, based on Deleuze and Guattari’s theories of smooth and striated space in their publication A Thousand Plateaus. The striated was to be the instructional signs we assimilate and obey each day as we pass through any city, “don’t walk, walk, do not enter, exit, stay behind the line, go back” etc. The smooth was to remove the control, and think of space in the way that the Inuit see their surroundings on an even, unbroken white horizon of snow, or the way that nomads travel without constraint in the desert landscape. For Codex Event 8, to smooth was to bring the jungle into the urban. As well as the article in Imprint, a full report can be viewed online: http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/codex8_sb12.htm
