The binding agent for this show is black ink made from oak galls and rust.  This ink is in use since early 4th century or longer, and was used in as writing and drawing ink, a textile dye, and a wood, tooth and skin dye. I have sent my version of the iron gall ink to the following artists with the question to contribute to Black Decay at Pinkhouse.
