In order to help with end-of-term printing loads, the Lab has purchased a second Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer. This should create shorter wait times when people are using different media to print.
In order to distinguish between the two printers, we have gone back to a past practice of the Lab to name the devices after artists. In this case, we decided to honour two retired U of C employees in the photography area. Arthur Nishimura is an Associate Professor Emeritus who started teaching photography and art fundamentals here in 1971. He also served as Department Head. James D. (Jim) Williams was the Art Department's photography technician, supporting dark room work as well as the small satellite computer lab that used to be housed in AB 611. Essentially, he was the IAML's "other" technician from the founding of the IAML in 1994 until the renovation that moved the IAML Main Lab to the Art Building in 2006.
We honour these contributors to the photography area of the Art Department by referring to our two sheet-fed photo printers as Arthur and Jim.
