Occuprint emerged from a request by the The Occupied Wall Street Journal to curate an issue dedicated to the poster art of the global Occupy movement. The Occuprint project is meant to connect people with this work, and provide a base of support for print-related media within the #Occupy movement. With this collection of posters, Occuprint’s aim is not to produce a unified aesthetic, but to magnify the diversity within this movement. They suggest that while some people are interested in “branding” this movement, that sort of thing may be unnecessary or even counterproductive. In their words: “We are not trying to create a new brand, we are trying to build a new life. If we let that new life live for a while, new and unexpected styles will emerge. That is our hope.”

Dual Views explores the forgotten labor history of San Francisco: violent battles along the waterfront, a bombing on Market Street, the former dynamite factory in idyllic Glen Canyon and more. SF State alumni Wendy Crittenden and Tom Griscom drew upon the Labor Archives and Research Center’s “San Francisco Labor Landmarks Guide Book” to identify sites and then roamed the city's streets seeking traces of its explosive past. Crittenden and Griscom’s contrasting styles form a fresh vision of the city and add a new perspective on the tradition of landscape photography.
