In the ‘Processed project’ Boterenbrood explores the characteristics of reproduction as defined by the traditional four-color offset printing process. The project originated out of disappointment with reproductions of icons of the visual arts. Despite all efforts to make identical copies, they always lack the energy, the liveliness of the original work. Somewhere in the process of reproduction, excitingly vibrant colors lose their power. Therefore Boterenbrood focused on the reanimation of the colors. He has developed an alternative method of reproduction based on the subtractive CMYK color model, celebrating color uniqueness.
The series offer an enlightening insight into the CMYK color construction and result in the creation of the new color reproduction system BCRS (Boterenbrood Color Reproduction System).
