Inspired by the ephemerality and potential of argon gas to get electrified with high voltage, become plasma, and conduct metal.

In the making of this piece, we could find similarities with the automatic drawing movement that is made possible by suppressing consciousness and rationality and letting go of the process of creation itself. The drawing technique with the plasma cutting has a particular look because of various depths that could be achieved once the metal melts and sensory limitations due to the protective suit worn by the artist.

Argon gas was used for welding, plasma cutting, and inside the glass tube conventionally known as neon light.
