This portrait was printed on an obsolete reconditioned dot-matrix printer. Technically it is a mix and dialogue between analog and digital, old and new. The portrait was photographed by a modern DSLR digital camera printed on an old printer from the 1990s. The various sheets were mounted on a flat, rigid surface using the hand-lettering technique. Up close you can see the flaws in the joints of the paper and the printing points of the matrix. Moving away from the work these flaws are becoming harder and harder to see and the image gains unity and clarity. It represents the present feeding and preparing the future, the passage of time, obsolescence.
