A trace-body

‘A trace-body’ is an installation in two parts. In the first room three screens play ‘Videos from a body’. On the floor of the second room are ‘Garments: gusset, waist, and ankle’.
A camera is connected to a body, capturing traces of its movement. A body acts as a lens, its rhythm embedded in the video.
Installed at the Graduate Degree Show, Glasgow School of Art, September 2017 on completing MLitt Fine Art Practice – Sculpture.

A view close to the grey gallery floor. In the foreground a glittery purple lycra garment, sort of like hot pants, rests on the floor. In the background, out of focus, two smaller bundles of the same fabric are lying.
