blanking (insert)

Paterson, D. and Impey, A. (2012) blanking (insert). [Artefact]

Full text not currently available from Enlighten.


A collaboration with artist Alex Impey for the publication project 'Prawn's Pee', part of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2012. On each day of the festival, Prawn's Pee (Rob Churm and Rebecca Wilcox) printed and distributed a daily 'newspaper' consisting of commissioned contributions from artists and writers. Alex and I produced an 'advertising' insert for the newspaper, printed on the blue-backed paper used for billboards. Our intervention referenced the billboard owners' practice of 'blanking' out advertising sites using the blue side of the paper when they no longer have a paying client for the spaces they manage. The blue-blanked space is both a space of possibility and an indice of recessionary economics.
