Encapsulated Drawings, 2016-2017

These works utilize an archival document preservation method called encapsulation. With a specialized machine, ultrasonic waves fuse chemically-inert polyester sheets together to create a protective ‘package’ for a document. Unlike lamination processes (which often involve non-archival adhesives, unstable or unknown plastic sheeting, and subject the document to high heat or being fed through the rollers of a machine), encapsulation with an ultrasonic welder does no harm to a document.

the mediated image acts as a reflection of self; of space; of light.
