Urban Sketch

I was walking in Philadelphia and saw a man sleeping in a lawn chair under the 676 Exp. I had no pencil or paper but had just bought a roll of duct tape so I found a piece of board and sketched him in torn duct tape. When I returned to the studio paint and pencil didn't couldn't capture him so I "painted" him on woven copper with 1000's of staples and oxidized the entire piece with acid. The uneven copper turned brown and green, the stapled man turned brown and black. 24"x 24" x2"
