The 'Time Wasting Experiments' are an ongoing series of letterpress prints I've been producing which document time wasted. These are in part inspired by tracking 'billable hours' but also come from the compulsion to always be doing things and producing objects. This series is a sort of audit of how I spend my time, but the prints could also be thought of as permission slips allowing you to spend a period of time in a wasteful way (maybe recontextualizing a private, shameful activities into something which one tries to get done in a set amount of time).

This project is ongoing, so check back for new prints documenting my recent wastes of time.

This is made with hand-set 10pt Caslon lead type, and printed on an old Vandercook press that is affectionately known around the studio as Tony.

All prints in the 'Time Wasting Experiments' series are produced in unlimited editions, rather than limited editions.

The print is 5"x5" and is shipped unframed in glassine/archival art bags.
