Seth Apter designed Synapse as part of his Matrix series. While the movies may be the first thing to come to mind, that is not where this title comes from. A matrix is typically a group of numbers that are displayed in a fixed number of rows and columns. The symbols and marks in all of the stencils in this collection are all laid out that way as well. More broadly, a matrix is an environment in which something develops. For sure that is exactly what happens when you take a stencil and get to creating. And finally, a matrix is a term often used in printmaking to represent the surface from which an image is taken. Again, it sounds like you can apply this to stencils too.
Synapse is accompanied by Seth's Etched, Grate Full, and Gridlock stencils. Each of these four stencils can be used in full as is or broken up in sections. The design of these stencils allow you to truly make them your own. Synapse and Grate Full, the two 9 x 12 inch stencils, are large enough so that when used in full, you can create an abstract pattern that can become the focal point of your work. Individual segments can also be used on their own for smaller pieces. Individual rows or columns can become borders. The size of even a single symbol is large enough to become a container or frame for a word, making them well suited for journaling.
