Dexter Sinister
Stampa Programmata, 2017, Framed/Unframed

In 1965, Italian artist and designer Bruno Munari released the Tetracono with an event and exhibition at the Danese Milano showroom, inviting spectators to “...meet the Tetracono” as if it were a person. Instead, Tetracono is a product, an austere 15-cm black steel cube housing four aluminum cones, each painted half-red and half-green, designed to spin at four distinct speedson an 18-minute cycle. Its function is to “show forms while they are in the process of becoming.” Stampa Programmata, or “programmed printing,” is a composite of four different moments in the cycle of the Tetracono, as the individual cyan, magenta, yellow, and black plates. Dexter Sinister, f. 2006-11, was a publishing collaborative based in New York City. Opened by David Reinfurt and Stuart Bailey, Dexter Sinister’s approach to creating work was a comment on the world of contemporary commercial publishing and the prevailing excess of the current art market.
