Line Cast

During theoretical and experimental research into the expression of the line, Arents came across an ancient method of drawing straight lines by help of a simple cotton string and chalk. This technique is still used by construction workers for purely practical purposes.
In japan this technique is mainly used by carpenters, using a special tool called sumitsubo. Instead of chalk they use ink to create an imprint of the line. This inspired me to create smaller (than the monumental Chalk Line project) works on paper.
