In order to produce paper products for the world, it is estimated that around 4,000,000,000 trees are cut down every year. To put it mildly, this is absurd. So, in Ohio -- California -- New York -- Georgia, as we edge our way from the ashes of manufacturing and industry — to the full embrace of intellectual property, recycling, electronic commerce and clean [weightless? Spaceless?] energy sources like solar and wind power — with the slow phasing-out of printed news, magazines, bills, contracts and ephemera — it seems we find ourselves living in an increasingly paperless world. And by all appearances, these newer methods of exchange and productivity seem to be reliable, yet more efficient. At this stage, clearly there’s no turning back now. So instead of standing agape in pure speculation, denial, panic and/or paranoia, one might hold the belief that now is the time to dig in – to do the work — to invest in the intellectual challenge – so as to proactively define the fine art, electronic future in the best, most uniform, pragmatic way one knows how and is capable of.
One of the most obvious steps in this paperless transistion is for one to learn how to effectively use e-paper; a tool that can help to solve our industrial nightmare problem. A scholarly e-document has just been released to explain one such way in which traditional paper can be scaled back tremendously -- in the fine art print world -- by adapting to the Electronic Space Print, virtual print press process.
By employing the tenents of the Uniform Electronic Transmissions Act, E/S/P: Electronic Space Print is a document, which provides an intellectual protocol for creating limited edition, fine art prints, without the use of "greenhouse gas" paper products.
