Hand Prints

DIGITAL PRINTS ON FILM, ENCLOSED IN TRANSPARENT ENVELOPES AND SUSPENDED FROM EACH OTHER

In this piece I explored the use of hand prints by ancient peoples across the world to create lasting reminders of their presence.
I also wanted to find a way of marking my passage through the landscape that was transient and would only last for a short time.
Often, birds and animals had left their mark before me.
