Pyramid Scheme
screen print on Coventry rag paper
12 x 34.5 inches

Complementing the installation COIN is a limited edition screen print depicting William Hope "Coin" Harvey’s never-realized Monte Ne pyramid. Beginning with a source image four times removed from the original drawing (drawing, to woodblock print, to photocopy, to digital scan), this object is a fifth reproduction of Harvey’s vision. Working with Idavid Graficks in Joshua Tree, California (editions printed for David Hockney, Mark Mothersbaugh of DEVO, and Raymond Pettibon, etc.), the print remains faithful to the degraded source image, while existing as a renewed, highly crafted artifact.
