Mary Wahr: Decalcomania. In: Bridges 2011. Pages 617–620



Decalcomania was originally a term that referred to transferring designs from specialty paper to pottery or glass. In artwork, decalcomania means transferring art material from one surface to another. When the surfaces are pulled apart a beautiful fractal pattern results. The process was invented by the Surrealists and has been reinvented by some contemporary artists. This workshop gives an introduction to fractals, a brief overview of the history of decalcomania and the opportunity for participants to create decalcomania.
