Title 16 Charcoal is a project inspired by the national parks. The art is made with charcoal derived from the United States codes that create the national parks (Title 16). The charcoal is also derived from the code of federal regulations which implement Title 16. I soaked the laws and codes in water and then created small shapes with the wet paper. After the paper dried, I burned it inside oxygen deprived canisters to create various shades and consistencies of charcoal. I used the charcoal to create drawings of Native American ruins that are protected by the laws and regulations of Title 16. I also used the charcoal to creating paintings for the University of Utah School of Law (The Great Wall of Zimbabwe and Alexandria - these also include charcoal derived from Pacific Law Reporters). Below are images of the national park series.
