A black horizontal wooden plane cuts across the center of the image, suspended in mid-air with monofilament.

Directly below the wooden board, a dense field of black powdered graphite mimics a shadow.

Looking down at the surface of the wooden board, one sees that text has been burned into the surface.

Close-up. The surface of the board is a lustrous black, and the grain of the wood is raised.

The letter begins: "Dear Pat / It was a pleasure seeing / last night". Certain words have been omitted.

Burned wood with pyrogravure details, graphite powder, monofilament.
