I created these images in remembrance of the 3022 lives lost on September 11, 2001.
This work grew out of The Waterknot, my design for the World Trade Center Memorial.
These monoprints were made by floating pigment on water, then transferring the composition to paper.
The process is thought to have originated in 13th century Japan, where it is still known as "Suminagashi".
From Japan, the process spread to India, Persia and Turkey, where it grew more complex.
In Europe the material became known as marbled paper, and it was widely used in bookmaking through the 19th century.
