There are two kinds of things in the world, things that are ok and things that suck. Many of the things that suck are strictly speaking not really things. They are companies or services. It’s not a big surprise that many of these are related to the internet. These amorphous entities are the pillars of the digital universe. Amazon sucks, Facebook sucks, Google sucks, and so do all the other companies that infiltrated modern life and that seem to be so indispensable in present age. For the contemporaries who share the feeling that these things suck I made a set of prints. Each print is based on the logo of one of the entities that suck. They are linocuts printed in editions of 20 copies.
18 linocuts in a semi-archival box, hand-printed on 120 gr acid-free dorée paper, 29.5 x 21 cm each, stamped with archival ink. Edition of 20 copies, 450 € (+ shipping by registered mail), available in the shop (price to increase as edition sells).
