Snow consists of a cardboard cover, four attached sections made mostly of tracing paper, and thirty-one homemade plastic sleeves filled with a variety of loose materials and folded oversized sheets. More than a visual diary, Snow is a container for Roth’s artistic knowledge. Represented within its pages are a multitude of print techniques, often layered and combined. Roth explored methods—diazotype, for example—whose results could be unstable and might disintegrate or disappear, he used cardboard and cellophane tape to attach bits of paper, and he shot sections of the project with a BB-gun. A physical embodiment of Roth’s burgeoning interest in entropy and decay, the work bears an inscription inside—“wait, later this will be nothing”—that predicts the inevitable fate not only of the project but also of the artist and his oeuvre.
