XERO

I print with 500,000 volts
by deconstructing the photocopying process.

Using a homemade Van de Graaff generator, an electrical field is made upon a sheet of acrylic. Toner powder is then scattered over the sheet revealing the electrical field, the shape of which is determined by the charge strength, movement, weather, and random chance.

The field is then destroyed through the process of transferring onto paper, which is then heat-sealed.

Each print is completely unique.

Dimensions vary from 38 x 56 cm, up to 5m x 1.4m
