I am fascinated with things you can’t see but have a sense of; the space left behind, the remnants of life.
There’s a neat little word that sums it up – palimpsest – nothing is ever completely erased, we are enriched by what has come before.
That we all leave a trace. We might move on, but there’s a part of us left behind, whether a memory, a thing, a photograph, a gene etc, creating a new layer.
This formed the basis of my final work for graduation at Whitireia in 2010. I plan to continue this research for the Handshake project.
