On 21st June 2013, our article 'In conversation with Rana Abboud, the Designer of Digitalis' was published in World Architecture News Metroblogs. Rana shares her story of making of Digitalis, her rattling art installation for Vivd Sydney 2013.
It is very satisfactory to do a start-to-finish canvas framing on my own. It combines my love for photography and woodwork, and I thoroughly enjoy it. I have decided to frame all my photograph canvases by myself for my first exhibition. Not sure where and when, but I am sure I will get there. Right now I am going to share the canvas framing process with you all. It is simple (may be after a few tries ...) and enjoyable.
'Luminance' on 2 frames of 16" x 30"
The photo is printed on a canvas from professional printers.
Two Frames of 16" x 30" is made using various tools.
Canvas is cut leaving about 2cm border all around. Frame is placed on the reverse side in the centre. The canvas is folded over the frame and stapled using high-pressure staple gun. [Tip: Make sure that you are holding the gun forcefully ensuring staples are inserted nice and tight. If they are slightly loose, use hammer to fix any gap between frame and the staple.] Start from the centre of each side and then make your way towards corners leaving about 10-15cm from ends.
The corners are folded and secured with staples.
And it's done!! Ready for the gallery ...
