Anagrams (1995–97)

For this series, Rauschenberg made digital color transfers from his own photographs using inkjet dyes. As with the smaller-scale Waterworks (1992–95), the images in the Anagrams were transferred to paper using water. In the Anagrams, however, the artist’s hand is more apparent as he transferred the images using a handheld burnishing implement instead of a lithography press.
