IAIN MACHELL   Drawings and Sculpture
"Rewired", Site-Specific Installation at Usdan Gallery, Bennington College, VT
1998
Hand made paper, rust, wood, clamps, twine
Each sheet 8' x 4'
"Rewired" was generated from a short residency at the Pyramid Atlantic Center for Hand Papermaking, Printmaking and the Art of the Book, in Riverdale, MD. Handmade 8' x 4' sheets of paper were formed over a configuration of found rusted steel objects, linked by wires and rods and exaggerated by a watermarking technique. The sheets were strung under tension into a small corner of a gallery space, like a large-scale stitching of pages into a book.
