Ultraviolet curable inkjet printers, most commonly used in commercial digital printing, utilize UV sensitive inks that cure (or dry) upon exposure to UV light. This chemical reaction is instantaneous which allows for very fast, high quality industrial printing.

When uncured, the ink remains toxic and fluid. By exploring the use of these printers without their essential element, UV light, in what my be a new process – UV uncurable inkjet printing perhaps? The images are printed uncured and flat, then positioned vertically allowing the ink to run. The images are not digitially manipulated but are rather representations of different moments during the process.
