Pati Hill (b. 1921 in Ashland, Kentucky, USA; d. 2014 in Sens, France) was untrained as an artist and began to use the photocopier as an artistic tool in the early 1970s, continuing to do so until her death, leaving behind an extensive oeuvre that explores the relationship between image and text. In addition to this comprehensive body of xerographic work, she published four novels, a memoir, several short stories, artist’s books, and poetry. Drawing also became an essential part of her practice. In 1975, Hill published Slave Days, a book of 29 poems paired with photocopies of small household objects.
