“As a footprint is to a foot, so is a photograph to its referent. It is as if objects have reached out and touched the surface of a photograph, leaving their own traces, as faithful to the contour of the original…” (Batchen 1997, p.212)
Almost as if it were a performance, flower seeds are arranged into definite shapes, soil is swirled into cosmic formations and a delicate spider web is stretched across light sensitive material. Performances inherently linger as vague memories or as an infrastructure of feeling. By documenting these actions and recording their direct imprints it allows these memories and emotions to persist in time.
