Works on Paper

Small Sticky Strong

This series revolves around the material graphene.  Graphene, a single-atom-thick sheet of graphite, is two hundred times stronger than steel.  It can be produced by applying a speck of graphite to a piece of tape, and sticking and unsticking the tape until a thin film is produced.  I used the same process to create these drawings, layering graphite-coated tape to create value changes on white paper.  I used images from entomology to parallel the dual properties of smallness and strength.
