Dopple Press began in 2015 as Brighton’s first & only dedicated Risograph printers. Dopple is run by designer Liv White, “the concept behind Dopple is passion for the Riso print process, DIY culture and forming products with creatives for creatives. It’s all about the love of collaboration and creation.”
In the Ursula K. Le Guin text, she writes, ‘A book holds words. Words hold things. They bear meanings. A novel is a medicine bundle, holding things in a particular, powerful relation to one another and to us.’
The relationship between Brighton CCA and Dopple Press, Liv and the riso machine, as an environmental and economical means of printing linked to activism and democracy, echoes the essence of Le Guin’s sentiment. Liv holds the machine and the machine holds the many messages we want to communicate.
Brighton CCA worked with Dopple Press online for the duration of the programme to create new artworks with all that participate.
