Watermarks
Watermarks are part of the Forced Collaboration series. Each work exists in two states simultaneously, one half digitally and one half physically. ‘Original’ photographic works from this series exist solely online at the URLs shown below. Although equally unique their ‘meta’ equivalents are the only part of the work that exists physically.
