An essay on Alchemy (2018)

An essay on Alchemy
These were found pieces of “sumo-e” (ink-wash) in 2018, when I was preparing for an exhibition and needed to stain a number of wood strips to black. The newspapers were put underneath the wood strips, to protect the floor from paints. I used an iPhone for the documentation, and the “originals” were throw into the trash tank right after those shots were made.
