This series of drawings, collectively titled ‘Carbon Copy’, brings together replicas of the various embellishments and designs found on commercially available carbon paper sheets.

In an act of copying, located between those of drawing and printing, these design patterns are carefully transferred through pressure on a blank sheet of paper. Composed entirely of the residual carbon imprinted, the drawings function as material records of this almost obsolete technology of copying, as well as of the commercial brands that manufactured and marketed it.

Nihaal Faizal is an artist based in Bangalore, India. His works respond to the copy, the replica, the remake, the gadget, and the gimmick, through a reflection upon media documents from popular and cultural memory. Recent projects have invoked the semi-fictional histories of Flubber, Windows XP desktop backgrounds, special effects from TV shows, AI generated drawings from science fiction films, photographs from family archives, and pirated copies of video art. Between 2013 – 16, he organised G.159, a project space in Yelahanka New Town, and in 2018, he founded Reliable Copy, a publishing house for works, projects, and writing by artists.
