Traces

1999
Screen printed wall with iris prints and cast beeswax forms, 8'x8'x18".

The chance discovery of actual turn-of-the-century Buffalo blueprints propelled this project. Portions of the architectural plans, with text and images of common household vessels, investigate our attachment to place. The ghostly remnants of past lives are assembled to create a poetic evocation of the temporary and timeless aspects of home and their imprint on our memory.
