The Human Printer is a project, which involves a group of design students painstakingly making printed images, one CMYK dot at a time. This project saw the students lining themselves up in a sweatshop-type environment and creating the layered images in minute details like a robotic line team.

The results are astounding. The pictures look as if they have been freshly printed from a regular printer. When you look closer, you will appreciate the hours of painstaking work that went into these hand-drawn printer images. Up close, you can marvel at the layers of colored dots that make up the larger picture.

This incredible project makes us think about how convenient machines and technology has made our lives. Stats for Human CMYK Printers Trending: Older & Buzzing
