I work with an old sign painter’s tool – an electric stylus that leaves burned pinholes in paper when used on a conductive metal table. This tool emits high voltage, and requires focus and constant attention; it is mildly dangerous.

Ream was included in the 2015 Bellingham National, Whatcom Art Museum, in the Lightcatcher Building, Bellingham, WA. 

"Jonathan Borofsky with a tinge of Franken-Science and Dark Arts. and yet (hole)ly original in its process and making." Chris Buening
