Studio / Space / Print / Time
In 2011 Sam Falls began making a series of graphite rubbings of the various tools, plants, and other odd items in his studio. Using an automatic drawing method called frottage (developed by Max Ernst in the 1920s) these rubbings were created using sheets of drawing paper and a selection of colored graphite sticks. They soon expanded to include the studio space itself, with large sheets of paper used to record the surface of the floor, walls and windows.
This book brings together a selection of Sam's large graphite rubbings.
