Jesse Kauppila at Little Paper Planes

Check out this elaborate print project by Jesse Kauppila at Little Paper Planes:

Harry Smith’s “Anthology of American Folk Music” was remastered. Copper plates were engraved while listening to the “Anthology” so as to create a new master that could both be played as a record on a turntable and printed on a press as an engraving.

In a thorough and interesting interview, the artist says “I’m really interested in looking for what the ‘it’ of analog technology makes it so appealing. In many ways this project was the search for the ‘it’ that makes records, prints, paintings, Polaroids, slides, etc… so appealing.”
