Cory Arcangel Printer Test Patterns

Cory Arcangel is up to his usual print-related hijinks, according to UnBeige. This is a print for the upcoming “Studio Party” at the Whitney.

The work consists of the test pattern that his printer (an HP Photosmart C3180) initiates automatically when a new ink cartridge is inserted. The pattern is printed twice, once upside down, on a sheet of letter-sized paper. “To make the edition, ink cartridges had to be taken out and inserted into my C3180 100 times thus forcing the test pattern to print twice for each print.”

There must be a better way!
