Made on Zerkal paper with water based inks 100cm x 45 cm. These have been made using recordings in central France in the Limousin region in a small mixed woodland. I recorded in early spring before sunrise and just after sunrise once all the birds had started singing. I was interested in the notion of silence and singing , the moment when there was a transformation of place. I used the sonogram program to visualise these and overlaid them to form 2 lines across the print, a kind of script. Each print is unique using ink stained paper to allow seepage of the colour over the edge of the prints.

These interventions create each time a unique print with the same vocabulary.
