|The Ink Monkey|
This project consisted of a series of three explorations that best encapsulates the short story by Jorge Luis Borge. This poster portrays the monkey's quiet instincts. In this case, pins are used to represent the tracks of the monkey's footsteps, as he tip toes from house to house stealing ink. Please read the story below.
The Ink Monkey
This animal is common in the northern regions and is about four or five inches long. It is endowed with an unusual instinct. The eyes are like carnelian stones, and its hair is jet black, sleek and flexible, as soft as a pillow. It is very fond of eating thick china ink, and whenever people write, it sits with folded hands and crossed legs, waiting till the writing is finished, when it drinks the remainder of the ink. When done, it squats down as before, and does not frisk about unnecessarily.
