We Are Printers Too wins 2014 Gold Coast Art Prize

'Communications technology shapes our world but the artists’ video of an abandoned newspaper building shows how far and fast technology moves…In trashed offices and workshops, the artists discover all manner of redundant communication technologies: rotary dial telephones, Morse code devices, Linotype machines, ticker tapes. They show that the urgency of communication has shaped innovation, economics and social experience for almost two centuries... In the end, the work isn’t just an elegy for the printing press; it’s a reminder that communication is our life blood.' - Judge, Dr Chris McAuliffe
