On Style , began as a letterpress printed excerpt from Susan Sontag’s essay On Style and was obscured through a top loading photocopy machine by the mechanisms of the machine itself. The original hand-set excerpt was photocopied, and then the photocopy of the original was photocopied and then the photocopy of the photocopy of the original was photocopied etc. until the machine created a series of 200 edition 1 prints. Numbers 100 and 200 were scanned and sized, and the letterpress excerpt was preserved. Each photocopy is hand numbered and signed.
