Probability Prints
This is a series of prints based on chance, which determines the course of the composition

I made three different printing plates:
a collagraph made with hair, which was printed in dark brown
polymer plate of cells dividing, which was printed in light brown
polymer plate of a catalog of tools, which was printed in red

and two other 'layers':
a flat semi-transparent light white with a negative stencil of the cell division
a flat aqua with a negative stencil of a decorative lacy mat

and one last layer that was titled 'blank'

I created a sample space, giving a title to each layer or plate, example 'hair collagraph'. Then I picked blindly three times, then started printing.
