How can a temporal process represent itself? Pliny the Elder’s legend of the invention of drawing suggests that drawing establishes traces, or residues, of a form or action. Often these residues are limited, reductive abstractions of complex processes, acts committed by captors that cannot see everything. Self Representation attempts to provide a record of the transformation of ice into water without affording myself the opportunity to abstract its re-presentation. Ice was placed on a bed of printed effects, and as it melted, any water soluble pigments stained the bed’s highest level, creating an automatic inkwash. 2009.
