Material Alphabet


Dieline on paper

29.5 x 42 cm each

For this series of drawings, Lijn used a dieline printing process, an early form of photocopying used by architects to be able to easily disseminate copies of their preparatory drawings. 

Taking a book of aluminium sections, Lijn observed how the sections resembled an alphabet or set of hieroglyphs and made a series of works on paper through subtle variations and repeated forms.
