CMYK?, 2021

I wanted to experiment with using other colours than the traditional CMYK-colours for printing illustrations and photographs on the riso. In total I have used 14 out of the 17 riso colours we have at KMD, and made around 70 different colour combinations, on 4 different images each, and in total about 300 different images. It took a lot of planning and logistics, but it was incredibly fun to see all the different combinations, and how each of them effect the colours in the photographs.

With the riso inks: Black, Light Grey, Brown, Fluorescent Pink, Bright Red, Fluorescent Red, Fluorescent Orange, Sunflower Yellow, Yellow, Green, Teal, Aqua, Blue, and Purple.

I am a graphic designer and illustrator who lives in Bergen, and works as a risograph technician, teaching design and art students the process and technique of printing with a risograph, at Faculty of fine art, music and design (KMD), UiB. In May 2020 I finished a bachelor degree in visual communication at KMD. I love the ocean (even though I am afraid of it), collect old photographs and books, and enjoy drinking tea and having a cat on my lap.
