The Imprint of Existence
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
This research investigates the idea of our existence through the process of recording marks as a documentation of the past and present. My practice throughout this year has been working on tracing the marks around my life, from my home to my working place or school. My works try to make the intangible tangible, preventing these imprints from falling into the oblivion by turning them into artwork. The marks are the evidence of our lives and are worthy of our appreciation because they remind us how we become who we are today.
