Installed at the Graduate Degree Show, Glasgow School of Art, September 2017 on completing MLitt Fine Art Practice – Sculpture.
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.
A starting point for this work was the phrase “trace-body” as described by Sun-ha Hong in the essay ‘Presence, or the sense of being-there and being-with in the new media society‘.
