Clover Archer  resins (I thought you were gone forever)
the system
rubber mold & post-mold folio

system
step 1: using graphite, continue to black out all the letters on the found book pages excepting the letters that spell out the dialogue for "Waiting for Godot".

step 2: create rubber molds for each folio, allow graphite to transfer to mold and subsequently to resin casting to create ghost of text

The folios are destroyed in the mold-making process leaving only tenuous and ethereal evidence of the time spent searching for the text of the Godot play on the original folio pages.
