In a Puff of Smoke

2012 ArtPrize Entry

My entry is a triceph of influential figures from our past. They have been created using nothing more than a lit candle and a variety of blending and erasing tools. There is no burning. This is not pyrography. The only medium used is the soot collected onto the paper by passing it through a lit flame.
