Message from the Matrix
Never send a human to do a machine's job
The 3rd Jogja International Miniprint Biennale(JIMB) 2018 jury has chosen “Message from the Matrix” as the theme of the Biennale. The theme reflects the jury’s perspective and indicates the importance of the question of character and quality in the practice of reproduction in the graphic arts, where each edition of a work is of the same quality as the original, because each edition of a print is itself an original, not a duplicate. In the vocabulary of graphic arts, matrix is another name for a physical surface where a picture which is drawn, like a woodblock, plate, stone, or screen can be reproduced in multiple quantities. It is from this point of view of that JIMB 2018 invites participants to respond to the issue of matrix, both ‘matrix’ as a term characteristic of graphic arts as well as to the philosophy of matrix itself.
Reproduction through printing, as it developed, gave birth to the printing press which proceeded to change the world. The historian Benedict Anderson has described how the printing press standardized language and formed a new understanding about the notion of community. By the middle of the 19th century, the printing press had made possible the production of newspapers, meaning that news, stories, and pictures could be shared from anywhere in the world to people everywhere. Knowledge was no longer controlled by those in power but became the property of everyone.
In the pre-modern world, those in authority controlled written history. Media magnates controlled the news as well as people’s thoughts through print media. They could influence elections and government policy and could even foment - or halt - revolutions. Today, those who control the ‘matrix’ i.e. the media, including conventional printing presses, but also digital information networks, now control the world. The printing press has become a piece of technology where modernity can be achieved and with that, a new understanding of the nation state, citizenship, and progress realized.
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.
Artists can control the making of works of art, though on the other hand, technology can also control the methods of creating art. A matrix makes it possible for a person to produce reproductions of a work and this fact has democratized the image, allowing it to be shared to the entire world, to thousands of viewers, not just an elite few.
The post-modernist theorist, Baudrillard, has suggested that we now live in a culture of simulacrum that is, a situation where the image is primary. People believe in the image more than the reality, the image has already developed its own social world; the image precedes reality and even produces a new category of reality with the practice of reproduction permitting unlimited impressions. This is the post-modern situation which has created new forms of communication
This essay presents the background of the theme and the jury’s perspective as a starting point in the expectation it will be elaborated in the works submitted by JIMB 2018 artists. We are waiting to see outstanding ideas, forms, techniques, and concepts from printmakers everywhere.
