After playing around with using wood to overlay a restriction on top of a photographic image, I started to look at the discarded sellotape I had used at the time to hold the wooded pieces in order. It had picked up a patter on its surface, holding the memory of the grains in the wood. I found this fascinating and wanted to preserve it. These images are incredibly abstracted but it could be interested into explore how far i could push this concept of drawing through sellotape by possible etching or scratching drawings onto the surface of wood and then transferring these images to sellotape.
