Hello! my name is Songyu, and i love to play with materials. I like using hands on, direct approaches
to my work, and thus i decided to experiment with such in this introductory project. For this, i
used 3 different mediums. Fire, Pen ink, and Linoprinting. All 3 pieces have some
correlation to the idea of constructing.
For the first, i masked the letters using acrylic sheet, and torching the paper with a
torch, creating negative and positive space, half incinerated half left clean.
For the one with pen ink, i used stippling, which resembles construction, the
building up of a piece of work.
Finally, i did linoprinting, by first carving out the text onto a piece of rubber,
then inking it and printing onto the name tag.
