Raw Color simplified the ingredient of 'medieval wood' to its smallest fibre. This element, originating from one plank, is transformed into a pile of paper. By combining the classical medium of handmade paper with the technology of today, the digitalized year rings grown by the hand of the machine. Treating the wood like an archaeologist we studied the dark oak wood. We weighted, measured it and photographed every step in the process. We choose plank number 3 to saw into sawdust, this was the ingredient for the paper.
In the end we decided to use the technique from this time-being, a computer controlled milling-machine, to draw the rings of the wooden pole. One pole (number 6) we let cut into slices, here came 44 slices out. These 44 different slices were digitalized and brought back on the paper, drawn by the machine.
