SUBLIMATION PRINTING T SHIRTS. BLACK BART SIMPSON T SHIRT
Sublimation Printing T Shirts
- A dye-sublimation printer (or dye-sub printer) is a computer printer which employs a printing process that uses heat to transfer dye onto a medium such as a plastic card, paper, or fabric.
- A T-shirt (T shirt or tee) is a shirt which is pulled on over the head to cover most of a person's torso. A T-shirt is usually buttonless and collarless, with a round neck and short sleeves.
- (T Shirt (album)) T Shirt is a 1976 album by Loudon Wainwright III. Unlike his earlier records, this (and the subsequent 'Final Exam') saw Wainwright adopt a full blown rock band (Slowtrain) - though there are acoustic songs on T-Shirt, including a talking blues.
- A short-sleeved casual top, generally made of cotton, having the shape of a T when spread out flat
'Found Image ' Dye Sublimation Print 1985
AN A4 DYE SUBLIMATION printer was veRRy pricey back in 1985. We were getting brilliant prints off an early model Amiga computer hooked up to the $A20,000 Dye Sub printer I'd acquired with some grant funds! We couldn't really afford to make too many copies - but in the name of research we went ahead anyway, doing our 'what if?' computer imaging experiments.
We were riding a brand new frontier, staff and students together. In many instances the students were way out ahead of their 'teachers'
One day after students had left the Computer Studio, as I was shutting down the systems, I found an interesting scanned image had been left on one of the machines. An image with potential for development, it seemed to 'ask for' some kind of colour transformation.
The Amiga's 'DeLuxe Paint' software made it transparently easy to grab the colour palette of any image and use it to remap any other image in the system. On these particular machines we were restricted, I remember to 4096 colours.(That's 2 to the power of 'something' - multiply 2 by itself enough times and you will arrive at 4096 It gives one a wide range of colour possibilities and an interesting 'pixel' grain under certain conditions. In those 'dark ages' of computer imaging we were always working within technological constraints of one kind or another trading off speed with colour range or resolution etc. Working creatively within constraints actually engages and stimulates the creative process in our experience. Those early days of computer imaging yielded some remarkable visual solutions.
In this image the pixellation is an interesting component of the image
In a process taking approximately 30 seconds this image had appeared on the screen. A 'found image' which has intrigued me ever since. A new point of departure for further enquiry, and an example of the "WHAT IF?"questions artists and designers were continually asking as they stretched the limits of vision and technology on the digital frontier.
