Electric Dancer

Again I used colored inks, for this piece, but this time we used rubber cement to preserve the white of the paper. This time however, we were asked to add conte crayon on top. This turned out to be my favorite project of that semester.

So where did the word “electric” come from? In the film “Fame,” from the 80s, there was a song called “I Sing The Body Electric.” A student at my high school sang the song at an assembly one time. Anyway, when I finished the piece I thought about the song.
