Work ships with custom powder-coated aluminum wall mount display system, as well as all required equipment.

In this work, the demise of ink and the death of pen and paper are explored through the encumbered journey of a small ink covered figure struggling to reach a note pad. As an anthropomorphic representation of ink itself, the figure emerges from a small pool of black liquid and crawls with great effort toward an open pad of paper resting nearby. He leaves in his wake an inky black trail before coming to rest on the notepad, where, obsolete and no longer relevant, he fades slowly and forever away.
