Air operates elusively, always surrounding us yet only profoundly present when it is absent. In these drawings, air undergoes processes of translation, between forms and into the visible, a stone made from air.

These drawn ‘air studies’ are based on the rocks found in Japanese karesansui – zen gardens – places designed for meditative contemplation. The drawings were initially derived from constructed karesansui stones made only from air and a mylar skin. 3-dimensional scans of these inflated forms were then created, modelled as a flattened mesh, and then drawn by a plotter, pen on board like phantasmic nets.
