Suminagashi is the Japanese art of marbling by floating sumi ink on the surface of water. The floating ink is manipulated into patterns through the use of natural forces such a wind or vibration, drawing, or the introduction of experimental additives. Each image is the imprint of a precise moment in time when the swirling, morphing pattern is transferred to a sheet of paper. Because of this, as well as the cultural history informing suminagashi, the abstract images have a strong visual connection to natural phenomena.
