My talk referred to my essay, Print Media Coupon as Artifact, and was presented within the Archives and Collections session. I shared the session time with Jo Stockham, an artist and professor of printmaking at Royal College of Art (RCA) in London. Jo's illustrated talk, No Map No Body, referenced her own art practice, along with her role as the head of the Printmaking Program at RCA with "opening up" the definitions of print practice to include printed ephemera and conceptual practice with information. She also shared her students work of cross disciplinary practice with industrial histories, commerce, and politics.
Visit Chisenhale Studios to learn more about Jo Stockham art practice.

The Coupon Collection was started, because of a noticed visual change in the print media coupon form to a QR Code. Marshall McLuhan’s technical forms of communication will be referenced to how participants shape information with print media and digital media. Carrie’s process of collecting and forming a collection with the coupon contributes to the continual analysis of the print media culture’s transition.
