This work is made by pricking rice paper with a lit incense stick over and over again.
The most heavily burnt away parts, where there is supposedly 'nothing' , is where we read the form as existing.
"form is void and void is form"
I wanted to make a drawing that feels like it is pulsing and vibrating. That it is alive and changing. A form that has no edges, but gathers and dissolves into the background.
The mirror backing reflects the punctured surface so it gives the illusion of having multiple layers. And when the viewer stands in front of it, their reflection is reflected back at them and the light reflecting through the holes seems to shift and move with the viewer.
