(2010 - brush and ink on paper - 4.5' x 5.5') This work advances the dialogue between the mediated form of representation in low budget contact magazines in which gay men choose to present themselves and sometimes their sexual interests to a wider community. The work is achieved via a long process of photocopying in which each enlargement is significantly degraded in quality. This process in which the copier is making ‘approximate’ sense of what is being copied yields marks and a structure that instantiates the image.
