A large-scale woodcut installation was conceived to bring the traces of the landscape within the confines of the architecture of Domain House. The process of woodcut was developed beyond its conventional book page size into a scale that cascaded down an entire wall and across the floor. Wood was used due to its reference to fire but was printed using an innovation on Japanese water-based printing providing a seeping watery stain over which the blackened woodcut was hand printed. The work was printed onto sheets of Japanese Kozo paper that were hand sewn together into a grid reminiscent of a shroud but also referencing the commemorative tapa cloths of the Asia Pacific region.
