old habits

In one portfolio review last October I was cautioned against using the scanner as a photographic instrument because there are a lot of artists now using it. The reviewer was hinting at push back. While I took that criticism to heart and photographed it with the view camera, I ended up creating my favorite version of the buckeye, shell and all, with the scanner. Old habits, I guess.

I did print it on the Tosahakkinshi (the tosa washi) made for the exhibition in Ino Town, Japan at the Paper Museum.

Here is a scan of it. I’ve decided to submit this for the Dayton Visual Arts Center’s annual auction. It will be the first time this paper will be seen in the mid-west.
