N.B. This edition is currently not available for sale.

Each standard edition includes a set of 10 unsigned prints, a signed & numbered colophon sheet, and a custom-made box. The set of images is screen-printed by hand onto a bed of brass powder suspended in medium. When the artist applies glacial acetic acid to the surface of the print, the resulting oxidation reaction generates a unique pattern, thereby altering the image as a function of chance. The chemical reaction is influenced by atmospheric conditions, such as oxygen levels, humidity, temperature, or pollutants in the air. Due to the difficulty and labor-intensiveness of producing each edition, the total edition size has been reduced from 250 to 140.

Standard Edition: $800 The custom box of the standard edition is made from wood, acrylic, magnets, and embellished with laser engraving. 

Display Case Edition: The custom box of the standard edition is made from wood, acrylic, magnets, and embellished with laser engraving. This version is sold out.
