This riso print edition by Raffard Roussel was printed by My Monkey gallery printshop and published by Octave Cowbell for the exhibition Machine Terrestrographique in 2020 in Metz. The terrestrographic machine was thought as a way to emancipate from standardized tools and dominant uses, by designing a machine that will react to the place it is installed in. The terrestrographic machine makes images from inks made from collected matter in specific sites. This work suggests the reappropriation of our daily tools while developing a new sensibility to the materiality of the world that surrounds us.
