As an eraser, it's a reflection on the deterioration of the form as it erases mistakes. As a rubber banana, I discover the joy of throwing it against a wall. What is the resistance of black graphite being erased on white paper? Why do I allow meaningless constructs it bear meaning to my identity? How do I get graphite off of everything I own now?
