Site Installations; Painted collected leaves; Size Variable
Traces was created during The Schoolhouse awards fellowships over a two month residency. I worked on several things, including these site installations made from collected leaves in Mutianyu great wall area. I had been interested in their role in the place and the change of seasons. Mutianyu is truly a beautiful natural area full of life and nestled beneath the Great Wall. In recognizing the transient nature of the leaves, I wanted to express my heart felt gratitude and connection with the space and the Great Wall itself, knowing my time there was fleeting as well.
