My starting point was to make drawings, which would avoid illusion and the conversion of three dimensions to two, but were still observational. I chose the postage stamp because it has already undergone a process of drawing, scaling and conversion. Also I liked the idea that we are used to seeing stamps as identical multiples. My first drawing is of the stamp, my second is of the drawing of the stamp, the third is of the drawing of the drawing of the stamp and so on. With each drawing the relationship with the original object becomes more remote and less faithful.

Having completed the project I would have preferred it if the distortions would have progressively accumulated. As it is I think if I were to continue the process the drawings would remain quite similar, hovering around variations of themselves; running on the spot rather than moving further away from the original.
