Nap and York continued to foster an unbiased, flexible approach to the next stages of the work. Subsequent layers of the print included etching, lithography and silkscreen, all completed with collaborative imagery and mutually developed aims. For example, both independently completed some chalkboard drawings using the digital matrix as a reference point. The other part of the duo subsequently intervened on the drawing by erasing part or adding further drawing, resulting in a new form and more ideas. The white lines of the chalkboard drawing were then scanned into the computer and reversed to create a photo positive which became the black lines for the etched part of the print plate. A similar process was used to come up with the text part, printed as lithography. Using the digital imagery and drawings as reference points, they used an open, stream of consciousness approach to generate ideas for text; ideas from both poetry and prose in order to resolve the linguistic content. The final layer was a large, transparent blue, blob-like mass silk-screened over a portion of the print and, in its formal sense, served to determine and pull together the image. In the sense of creating an ellipsis, the space opened up within the work by our collaboration demonstrated an incomparable opportunity for inventive exploration.
