This print portfolio focuses on our perpetual drive to live better than ever before. Humans continue to advance our way of living beyond the needs of survival with an everlasting strive for MORE and BETTER: more comfort, better efficiency, more convenience, better quality, and simply more pleasure in our products and our lives. Participants may consider significant advancements such as medicine, transportation, communication, agriculture, and robotics, or may look to more ridiculous and unnecessary products such as Keurigs, slippers with headlights, automatic cereal dispensers, heated toilet seats, and Segways. As the ultimate creators of the multiple, how do contemporary printmakers relate our artistic practice, which holds a unique history to mass production, to these consumer products? How do our products indirectly connect us with other people and untold stories around the world? Prints should express this perpetual drive for better living standards, including the benefits and consequences of our desired comforts.
