Kai Vierstra


Kai Vierstra. Kai's studio.


Lightning Drawings. He makes them on a bed of nails... pressing the paper down flat to the board so that all the nails have punctured through... tilts the board and dips a ball in ink... the ball plink-plink-plinks down through the gridded bed of nails like a pinball machine, leaving a zig-zag ink trail. After the paper is pulled off the board/nails it is usually coated with a honey-scented beeswax.
