Computer generated prints from manipulated ink drawings, mounted on card and cut and folded. The series of prints can be constantly reassembled in a variety of configurations The University of the West of England organised a travelling exhibition by established artists and students entitled 'Boxing Clever' that explores the potential of packaging as an art form. The first exhibition was held at the Bristol School of Art Media and Design, Bower Ashton Campus on 18 to 22 April 2005. The show then continued on to the Royal West of England Academy from 30 April to 3 June and a concluding exhibition was shown at IMPACT 4, International Printmaking Conference at the Muzeum Narodowe w Poznzuiu at Pozan in Poland. Carinna Parraman, exhibition organiser, said, “Prints are usually hung on the wall, framed and flat. This portfolio, whilst starting-off life as a flat print, presents an added dimension. The intention behind this portfolio exchange and exhibition is to combine the printed image and paper engineering, and to create a new three-dimensional artwork.” The prints were also available to download from the internet along with instructions for their construction as 3D artefacts. The viewer could then select, download and assemble their own exhibition anywhere in the world.
