    1. Testcard

    (Week 1-2) Devise a testcard, 8.5x11, for a black & white photocopy machine

    The card is basically a set of questions or exercises - point, type specimen, line, pattern, half-tone, grey-scale spectrum, moire - designed to test the machine's effectiveness or value.

    The testcard should explore not only the effective (proper?) function of the photocopier, but also any other qualities (Test the limits of its language/your language)

    Investigate both the history and teh working mechanics of thsi machine, then (week 3-4) extend the scope of the testcard to include this kind of informaion.
