" Text is 'control lose control lose control lose control lose' and made like a monoprint with a word brushed in indian ink onto another piece of paper, and then quickly pressed onto another piece whilst still wet. The two words are partially overlaid which obscures the text as the ink bleeds together " Mark Titchner
