The text about an otter is from a poem by Catherine Byron: “Liadain to Cuirithir”, which develops the ninth-century Irish legend of “Liadain and Cuirithir”. “The otter must enter his holt through water. Water that’s stilled and steady, well-deep to catch the print of high-flying birds. The otter must leave through water: dry home, wet element, staking his life on margins”.
LONG-LASTING ARCHIVAL MEDIA
Printed from an Epson SC P800 using Epson’s 9-color UltraChrome ink system at 2880 dpi on Epson acid-free watercolour paper, a combination to ensure long-lasting quality. Wilhelm Imaging Research (www.wilhelm-research.com) suggest prints using this combination of ink and media will last for over 90 years without appreciable fading, based on indoor display framed under glass. Dark Storage Stability Rating at 73°F/50%RH is indicated to last more than 200 years. Detail is super fine at this resolution, almost ten times better than commercial printing so that even under a magnifying glass, prints hold up to scrutiny.
