Isolator is a papercraft head, 45 x 45 x 45 cm. Isolator was created for State Of Print.
It was designed and produced by David Lyons, Ken Fee and Cat Forsyth from Abertay University and Paul Harrison from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
It is based on Hugo Gernsback’s Isolator Helmet designed in 1925 and represents an ‘alternate history’ strand in the State of Print.
State Of Print is an artist collective and an artistic investigation. State Of Print asks the question ‘What is essential to making a state?’ Much in the spirit of Plato’s assertion that a philosopher should be king, our answer is ‘art (with an emphasis on printmaking)’ is essential to the identify of a state.
