The original work is Cubist Head, pictured in the main image of this page because I created audio for this project and wasn't sure what to put there. This work initially drew my attention because of how, despite looking haphazardly drawn, I nevertheless saw some order and deliberation involved in the piece. I also looked specifically for existentialist artists because I was interested in the movement, and Giacometti is one of its greatest influencers.

The work itself is an engraving on a copperplate. He gouged  the plate to create mostly straight lines and sharp angles, but the effect in the photo looks similar to a pencil on canvas. As an etching, the work is monochromatic and emphasis remains on the lines themselves.
