Printing a Prototype

In late January, I spent a Saturday with master printer Fletcher Manley, in Lunenburg, Vermont. We are seen here holding a prototype digital collage which I am producing for the Art of Action. The images are of root vegetables and mesclun greens which I scanned on a cold December day at Pete's Greens in Craftsbury, Vermont. The text in this prototype is one of a number of vision statements written by the Center for An Agricultural Economy in Hardwick, Vermont. My project will, in part, address the viability of high quality food production and distribution and how, through education and thoughtful community effort, there are many individuals and businesses who are developing a vision for Vermont's future.
