Topo Copy: Doing It With a Steamroller.

Back in 2014, Belgium-based Topo Copy — ‘Utopic print center for creative peoples’ — teamed up with Helix and Het Miat (Museum of Industrial Archaeology and Textiles Ghent) to make giant prints with around 25 different artists. This time they didn’t print using a press, instead they printed using a large panel of wood on the floor and a steam roller to make the impression at such a large scale, in a similar vein to the Big Steam Print Project. During the two day event, they carved linos and wooden plates, then they got inky by printing onto textile flags and paper with the aid of their steamroller.
