Dust Works

These pieces from the “Dust Works” series are the residue from one step in the process of making the “Penitentiary Tattoo Gun” series. To make the casing for the needle of the machine, the tip of a ballpoint pen must be scratched out. Through this tedious process, inked rock dust is produced. These works become an artifact of the build up of time this takes and the meditative quality of this process.
