Cut, then print

First-year MFA Photo, Video, and Related Media student TJ Pardy is holding his completed UV-printed and laser-cut image using his original photographic work. The process can seem at first counter-intuitive: the acrylic is first cut to size and then UV-printed; however, the resulting piece is a combination of a perfectly aligned image on a precision-cut mount. The piece was created as part of an assignment in Tak Cheung's "Related Media" class offered through the MFA Photo, Video, and Related Media department.
