Systems Complex, 2018 - ongoing & Anthropocenia, 2019 - ongoing

A series of ghost monotypes that collides the intense mechanical violence of the etching press with delicate, unique sheets of artisanal paper, creating unique, interdependent chance systems within geometric constraints.


In the Systems Complex series, a whole, flat sheet of kozo paper bears the negative imprint of its crushed double. The complex forms, recalling both human trash and interdependent ecologies, are offset by the basic rectilinear signals of Eurocentric 'progress'.

With a centuries-old aesthetic, the system and negative ghost impression for the Anthropocenia series are made from unused plastic trash bags found in a dumpster, each piece the same dimensions as the paper.
