A series of six doorstops made from soft basswood. The wedges each bear a sad little poem about love or touch or wear, burned into thier surfaces with a laser cutter. They could be read from the perspective of a person to a lover, or from the doorstop to the doorway. The text will be eventually beaten out by the weight of the door.

Curl Up maps the places where my skin touches skin when I curl up in the fetal position. This was the beginning of my experiments using burning as a form of inkless printing.

I inked my body, sandwiched paper between its folds in the chosen gesture, then scanned the images to be digitally manipulated. I made my 1:1 body data legible to a rayjet laser cutting machine, then treated the laser cutter as a printmaker’s press bed. The burn is a grayscale image, with pores and wrinkles burned straight through the page.

The collection of inkless prints is coptic bound in a plexiglass cover. This artist book lives in an edition of 40, to be fabricated by machine and hand upon request. It can also be freely disseminated as a set of .ai files and open source machine calibration instructions.
