Invited artists were asked to create an image based on rules developed by a different participant. Abiding by the rules given to them, the participant (image maker) created an edition of hand pulled prints for the exhibition and exchange.


The exhibition includes a wide range of responses to this prompt; it highlights collaboration, experimentation, inventiveness and the opportunity to play by the rules.
