Graphite with drafting film with sewing, suspended from the ceiling with monofilament wire
132 x 132 in
Material details: The drafting film is a product called Dura-Lene (manufactured by Seth Cole) which is a polyester-based archival material that is heat resistant and waterproof. The drafting film was constructed in separate modules and then assembled with cotton thread using a sewing machine. In sections where it could not be sewn by machine, it was fastened with acid-free double-sided tape. Sennelier Delacroix fixative for charcoal was used as a protective coating on the work. The top sections of the work are reinforced with acid-free framer’s tape and then clear monofilament wire is looped through small holes to attach the piece to the ceiling with nails.
