Part IV: Working. Playing.

The electropounce machine is a remnant of analog technology in sign painting, used to transfer drawings to billboards or signs. I use it as a drawing method; it burns tiny holes in paper with a spark at high voltage. 

I also have access to a full print shop and two experienced and very helpful printing techs, Kelly and Liz.

This is the beginning of a new body of work, hatched at this residency.
