Aggregates #25
intaglio, chine collé, debossing, embossing on Somerset
20 x 15 in

Intaglio print with chine collé. Altogether, eight 4x3 inch plates were used to create this print. Three plates contained etched images: of maple seeds rendered from life, of fragments of musical notation, and of an embossed inkless image of particle physics tracks. Chine collé was used to apply a 4x3 sheet of reproduced news clippings of reports of deaths from political violence overlaid with Mizutama lace. The impressions of four blank plates reinforce the debossed grid.
