Silkscreening has really captured my attention lately, and as a process, I'm amazed at how hands-on it remains. Even in factory enviroments where mass production is the norm, much silkscreening (especially in China, where I often travel) involves a man, a screen, a surface. There are machines of course (see top picture), but most silkscreening is taking place on long tables, with the goods spread out, with an individual moving slowly from one to the next. I love the democracy of this technique. So inexpensive and accessible.
