The prints you receive are archival, chromogenic prints on a semi-matte paper with a longevity of 100+ years under normal light conditions.
The quoted dimensions refer to the paper size, and not the size of image contained within the paper. Each image is printed with a minimum 1/4" border to allow for framing, and ships with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.

Right Index Finger, 2007
from the series Fingerprints
This image is from the series Fingerprints, in which each of my 10 fingerprints were reproduced using various materials and objects that hold significance to my past and my identity. The series was an attempt to create a portrait of myself containing both objective information and a subjective context for that information. Right Index Finger was made out of cassette tape from mixes made for me by friends over the last ten years. This image is meant to show that, while part of our identity is immutable, much of it is formed by our experiences, who we share them with, and how our music was shared.
