Perfect (after 'I am a verb.')

Pigment print, birch plywood, white ink residue

Before the ‘I am a verb.’ woodblock was ever used for printing, I photographed my hand attempting to align with its machined corner. It was, however, impossible to perfectly align the natural human hand with fabricated precision. After using the woodblock to create a series of white prints, I cut a rectangle from it to make the frame for this photograph. The residue of white ink remains visible in the crevices of the frame.
