Fringe (After Scarves)

by Kristen Mueller

Queens, NY - 2023

Accordion folded

Riso printed

First Edition of 25


Fringe (After Scarves) is an homage to “copier artist” Pati Hill’s photocopied reproductions of scarves, which she pulled across the copier platen to portray movement. 

For Fringe, a found length of off-white material was pulled across a large format Epson scanner platen. The resulting digital images were printed in monotone black on a RISO printer and bound into an accordion book that stretches to four feet, with five panels. A section of the scanned fringe was sewn onto each of the book’s spine edges, so that the work can be opened and read from either side.
