Body Print

Depending on the artist's intention, body print may be executed in different ways that include smearing of grease or margarine on the skin, hair and clothes or by pressing oneself against a piece of paper then dust the oiled imprint with the pigment on the ground. The artist's body acts as the common printing plate, the "body print" however, does not work or act as a self portrait. It rather explores 2 competing identity conceptions.

Pen and ink

Pen and ink is a traditional drawing technique using a dip style pen with India ink on paper. The fine tip on the old-fashioned pen is excellent for drawing varied lines and shading details. Some artists use a fountain pen with ink reservoir.

Found objects

Found objects, objet trouvé in French, are items which an artist finds and incorporates within a work of art. Collectors have been displaying aesthetic objects in collections for centuries. But modern art uses objects with non-art functions, such as recycled or repurposed materials.
