Marker was used on the reversed side of the drawing, layered heavily and allowed to seep through. This creates colored regions that retain they’re geometry, but gain texture and softness from the properties of ink spreading and diffusion. Darkening at the edges of many of the colored shapes creates the illusion of a fine line outline, yet shades softly into the shapes’ interiors. The “bleed through” color pattern is a perfect complement to drawn fine line traceries and soft stippled patterns.
The title is a pun on the Archimedes Spiral, which is a 2 dimensional chiral object. in this case the black ink patterns overlaid on the spiral suggest differing chiral environments and entities interacting with the spiral path.
