Created as an etching on copper plate using techniques I developed which use rosin powder suspended in a liquid and applied in a way which allows the rosin to move and collect in accordance to it's nature as a particle, producing these natural flowing patterns.  The plate has been printed twice, exploring the idea of the double life of the conscious/unconscious mind.
