500mm X 36m Ongoing
The aim of this current project is to produce a ream of printed paper that provides the source material for peripheral works as they arise.
Flowing along the length of the roll are a series of wood-block printed patterns, which are generated digitally and use motifs lifted from a simulated artist’s notebook archive.
As material is removed from the body of the roll to produce peripheral works, the incisions are either repaired or reinstated and this disruption produces an increasing complexity in the interwoven printed patterns and in the roll’s structure.
The paper stream is one outcome of the project, in addition there is the performance of production, pivoting on the uncertainty as to whether you are viewing work place or stage.
