In addition to our daily practice I have some personal projetcs.
EDICIONES EL FUERTE
INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER. SELF PUBLISHING. RISOGRAPH
Ediciones El Fuerte is a small self-publishing project that makes zines and posters using risograph. Based on illustration, graphic story, abstraction, and concepts about science, travel, cosmos, cultures, obsessions, they make zines and graphic work investigating different printing techniques, where the analog and the handcraft are the main characters.
El fuerte is composed of Sofia Noceti and Juan Casal, both designers and illustrators. They select the themes, collect information, illustrate, edit, print and then participate in fairs. They are motivated by the idea of seeing the complete process of the editions, from the idea to the creation and then the sale, the contact with the traders, the trips that involve taking the publications to different places. They work printing with a risograph TR, one of the oldest models of this type of machines. Being an old machine the whole process is much more "analog" and experimental than newer machines. From each impression they discover something new, such as repairing something broken that is always different from the previous one.
BABA DE PERRO
INDEPENDENT PUBLISHER. C-SIDE
Baba de perro is a publishing project that publishes emerging artists, poets, and people from Argentina from different disciplines to spread culture. It is a secondary project that emerged after several years of self-publishing with Ediciones El Fuerte. We feel the need to also edit friends and people we admire.
RARITIES. ETCHING. MONOCOPIA. P/A. PRESS
The works I make are the result of the sum of different techniques. I work with different engraving techniques. From etching, aquatint, monopia. In this discipline, I always work from an experimental start, moving away from any type of pre-existing sketch or idea. In the last years I have been developing a series of engravings that are born from the experimentation with the different times of the acid alluding to the geological eras.
