ink and polyurethane on vellum, 12" x 24"

A tribute to my friend who died from ALS. The words were printed on 19 sheets of vellum paper, each layered, covered in polyurethane, and sanded. The vellum was used to mimic muscle tissue, and the solidification using polyurethane to represent effects of the disease. 

Thanks for the kind words, United States government.
