Paper stack, 6 x 84 x 30cm
Text on crumpled paper
Artist Statement

This is an object based on an experiment with subtraction. Made from a 30cm stack of 270gsm paper hewn away at an edge, it’s the remnant of the gesture of hacking away at the even proportions of understanding and knowledge, inverse to the additive act of writing.
