We like a good challenge, and this one is no exception. The very clever Bruce Edgar came to us with a project he was working on for local Christchurch artist Julia Morison. The piece was to be exhibited at the Sydney Biennale 2010. The catch was it involved a massive amount of panels, intricate detail and it had to be accurate. After a series of tests we were ready to print. It was displayed in the Sydney Opera House... see details below.

The Myriorama works, started in 2008, are comprised of large-scale modules that reference a Victorian parlour game in which illustrated cards were arranged in many different ways. By using multiple panels, Morison invites the viewer to imagine a similar myriad of configurations. She has made a continuation of this series, Myriorama#7: Network (2010), specially for the Concert Hall Northern Foyer in the Sydney.

This next project, Torus, was produced for and displayed at the Christchurch City Council. It's fair to say that these panels take some careful handling and collating.
