gravestone store
strange to see death being sold


walk through one tunnel


looking back at the other end, overexposing the shot


markets selling flowers



and remembrance candles


another tunnel

realise i've entered a cemetery


beautiful contrast of lavished graves in a stark landscape









on my way back i pass some kids hanging out

Y3S1 Studio // Marks behind the Action

Work from last semester. Looking at the mark making behind the action of the body.

Marks created by the movement of my hand when cleaning my face for 7 days. Similar forms and patterns created display an unintentional routine of movement.






Traces of light mark the movement of my hands whilst doing mundane daily activities. 
Changing my clothes / Eating breakfast / Cleaning my face.
Acetate drawings of these marks are propped in front of the prints so as to isolate the mark.



Charcoal actions displaying the mark behind pulling paper for 10 minutes and blowing charcoal off the paper with the breath.

Y3S1 Studio // Doing and Undoing

7 minutes 31 seconds

I started off making wire and charcoal extensions of my body to track/map/trace my body movements. A bodily drawing/a record of time/preservation of action. These are stills from a recording of this idea. I then filmed another body drawing piece with an addition of erasing the drawing after. This was much more time consuming and physically exhausting. Using this doing and undoing as a metaphor for action and memory. Thinking of using repetitive movements as a symbol of repetitive action/mistakes/habits/behaviour.

Drawing + Erasing
Making + Unmaking
Creating + Destroying
Doing + Undoing
Action + Forgetting/Repressing
Attempting the impossibility of undoing an action.
Attempting to remove the effect of an action.
