Materials: clay, pins, photographic transparencies
imprint | index
imprint | index explores the presentation of a particular process in seeing simultaneously through eye and hand. The imagery of the work is created through the capturing of its own process in which pieces of clay are pressed between finger tip and camera button while taking a photograph. As the next photo is taken, the previous piece of clay is inserted into the frame of the ensuing photograph. In this way the work considers theme of memory and self referentiality, as the work is revealed through a realization of its own making. The viewers is given a set of clues regarding the process of the work within the final installation. Transparency prints are individually pinned to the wall, and an assemblage of clay pieces displays fingertip imprints formed between hand & camera.
