— Morphogenetic Freehand Etchings

Artist John Franzen draws into 2mm black coated copper and brass plates with a needle, creating meticulous etchings, from which he produces a small series of discharge prints.

His meditative drawing process starts a single straight line from the top of the plate to the bottom, which is followed by an attempt to copy that line as precisely as possible. Each subsequent line results in a slight straying from the original line, exaggerating the original imperfections. His breathing controls the line, and the line also controls his breathing, it is incredible to watch. See the video below.
