Impressions In the Language of a Lantern's Wick
by Jake Syersak
18p, b&w, risographed, 5"x6.5"
Impressions in the Language of a Lantern's Wick follows a trajectory of thought: perceived material shaping the idea to the idea's expression upon the world that sparked it.

That is not to say that this work is merely a document of process.
