This is an original dry-point etch of bamboo scaffolding in Shanghai, China. Made from a recycled plastic ‘plate’ and etching inks, the layers of structure, pattern, light and shadow are elevated as a piece of urban fabric. Inspired by a moment in the city, the ordinary is transformed by the etching process into something more monumental.
