Dalton Ghetti - Dedication to Art

I was perusing the world of Facebook this morning and came across an image of a pencil that was posted by Raw Vision. What's so exciting about a pencil? Ask Dalton Ghetti, who sees them as a medium for art.

All it takes to do something artistically innovative is the ability to see the common world around us in a new light. For example, here's the alphabet:

Alphabet, 2005. Dalton Ghetti (b. 1961). Pencil and graphite. Collection of the Artist.

And here is one single pencil held together by the lead, carved into a continuous chain:

There is also more about his work on the New York Times website here.

Keep writing (and carving pencils),
