Cut a piece of drafting paper
that measures at least 18" by the distance from shoulder to hem plus 3" to 4".
Rolls of drafting paper
, rug samples, paint rags etc litter the shelves and floors.
Summary: When landscaper Darien Ball began building a "living wall" to highlight the Tiffany stained-glass lamp exhibit at the Biltmore Estate this summer, he reached for some drafting paper

At the ICA there are examples from the early '70s, graphic equivalents of the installations he was doing at the time but rendered on drafting paper
whose medicinal green color is utterly alien to any function as "working drawings." These large sheets have a presence analogous to the sculptures' empty dryness.
