Posters, editions and open tools

This experimental project questions the formal impact of our tools in the graphic chain, standardized by our means of production. Documented as a user manual, it presents different scenarios for desktop printer hijacking. Its automatic layout generated by an algorithm allows each time to create new intervention protocols on the machine. It is about revealing our packaging in a system that drives us to overconsumption, breaking our habits and freeing ourselves from the standards set by manufacturers. Finally, this creative process restores uniqueness in the series. The office printer is no longer a mere purely functional reproduction tool but becomes a singular production tool.
