at theretherenow. the RISO printer is our campfire. It is the warmth around which we huddle. The RISO is peripheral by nature: institutional by design but co-oped by artists for creative possibilities. The RISO is hybrid by nature: an absurdly analog method of digital reproduction. The RISO is experimental by nature: it resists the service to the content inherent to the ‘publishing’ concept. The RISO is experimental by nature: it is a method of production that lacks a disciplinary frame.
