"The potential for carbon paper as a formal and metaphorical device is massive. It comes as quite a shock that very few artists have put it to use. I am reminded primarily of the work of Dorothea Rockburne and how she would fold and collage geometric forms with carbon paper. Occasionally a line would be drawn through the carbon paper transferring a line but more importantly that they would age and fade, they would go from black to purple. Time became a drawing element. There are certainly other artists like Latifa Echakhch with her installations using walls of carbon paper, Anna Gray and Ryan Wilson Paulsen with entire books bound with carbon paper, or mail artist Clemente Padin, but carbon is not by any means a popular fine art medium."
