Ink uses fractal patterns of blown ink alluding to river formations. Using compressed air on a smooth acrylic substrate, the ink becomes animated. Each drawing is hung in succession, while the video of the drawing being made is projected through the layers, giving the illusion of depth and sense of being submerged underwater. The video projection conversely creates a distorted refection on the wall behind the drawings. The relationship between process, product and bi-product are questioned.
