Brion Gysin, ' Adapted Paint Roller ' 1961

This adapted roller was used by Gysin whilst collaborating with William Boroughs 'on collaged scrapbooks that featured snippets from newspapers,his own (Borough's) photos,photo-collages,as well as bits of his own texts,printed and written.This body of work,to which Gysin also contributed,supplying drawings and rollergrid backgrounds to lend order to the individual pages,pages would amount to at least ten notebooks of varying lengths created over a period of a decade.'

Taking this tool as inspiration I'm considering pasting soft-kut rubber sheets on to large paint rollers to create large continuous prints.


  1. Great post. Here's more resources about Gysin...

  2. Your blog has given me that thing which I never expect to get from all over the websites. Nice post guys!
