Carbon Copy brings together replicas of the various embellishments and designs found on commercially available carbon paper sheets.

In an act of copying, located between those of drawing and printing, these design patterns are carefully transferred through pressure upon a blank sheet of paper. Composed entirely of the residual carbon imprinted, the drawings function as material records of this almost obsolete technology of copying, as well as of the commercial brands that manufactured and marketed this technology.
