My process starts with drawing linear patterns and attractions of imaginary buildings, spaceships, and organic forms. I rearrange these lines as I work towards developing a new kind of blueprint. The drawings are carved into aluminum plates using digital technology. There is even an element of improvisation while cutting - since I can start or stops the machine; change the depth of cut or even change the original pattern. After engraving, I apply dyes if a very free-flowing manner to create a sense of visual tension between the carved lines and liquid forms. Likened to a process excavation, the engraved lines fluctuate between visibility and invisibility among the layers of dye. - ETO OTITIGBE
