In the ‘‘Binding and String’’ series, my metal-binding technique is inspired by a Japanese dyeing method, in which string prevents corrosion on a metal plate. A plate treated by this technique is so fragile that it can only create three prints.
Moreover, each print has slightly different details, so it generates a variable edition. I think a print traces not only an image of the plate but also transfers a physical phenomenon; the things happening on a plate during corrosion and printing. I have become involved with this, and I realise that it is quite natural because our lives are full of chance elements, such as signs of impermanence, with regard to the Japanese sense of beauty.
