Studio Elana Schlenker

“Sunset Samples” print series

Sunset Samples is an ongoing studio project exploring color, pattern, and production techniques. Using sunset_hoverygradients found within sunsets we photograph, we break these images into halftone color channels, manipulating the shape and scale of the pattern in each layer. These are then reproduced in three distinct color layers, creating experiential, meditative expressions that ground these ephemeral occurrences in the tactile, tangible language of print. The project includes a risograph zine depicting progressively abstracted Sunset Samples and a series of screenprinted posters. We have also installed our work as a large scale, hand-painted mural.

Produced during a residency at the Facebook Analog Research Lab
