This body of work is creating imprints and copies using digital printing material ( Printer paper and ink). These graphs are made in the absence a machine but through a process that substitutes nature for machines. The nature component thus far has been snow that uses ink and dye to create imprints on photo paper.
Before a snow storm roll photo paper is laid upon the lawn and covered with materials found in the surrounding wooded area (sticks, leaves, trash, rocks, etc). The found materials are placed carefully on top of the paper to construct what will be imprinted graphs. After snow has fallen printer ink is painted on top of the snow. The paper is left while the snow melts imprinting the paper over the course of days, sometimes weeks at a time. As they are left outside and exposed to the elements of nature, they start to disintegrate, become frail, and get dirty. Where machines tend to be precise and exact, my work embraces imperfection and chance that materializes when a natural, uncontrollable catalyst is part of the process.
