laser etchings on Arches Aquarelle watercolor paper
30”H x 23”W each
edition of 5 + 1 AP
“Blank Stare” is a series of laser etchings on watercolor paper that integrate waveforms of fluctuating levels of attention recorded with an EEG (electroencephalogram) sensor. The fine lines burned into the paper in a repeated radial pattern create a visual focal point in the center of each etching. Each print in the “Blank Stare” series repeats a single EEG waveform recorded while the artist stared at a blank sheet of watercolor paper for sixty seconds.
