Information and materials

Acrylic paint on card stock. One page of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s essay ‘American Scholar’ that includes a Emerson’s citing of Shakespeare’s Hamlet was photocopied onto off-white card stock. Black acrylic paint was applied onto the photocopy in a manner similar reminiscent of Rauschenberg’s Untitled (Asheville Citizen). The cardstock was then affixed to the page using double-sided tape.
