In the beginning of the pandemic, the town was very empty and I felt a vacuum. I only get this feeling of solitude because I know who was there before. I see their footprints, in the form of constructions, drawings on the wall, plastic bags floating in the wind and, well, footprints. There seems to be a vacuum in space, before occupied by moving and breathing masses.
I explored this idea further with my project Where Are You by creating humanesque shapes in 3D and texturing / morphing them through the materiality of things people leave behind, like plastic, construction materials, art, and positioning them in ghost town scenarios. I try to make the connection that you can leave, but your effect on your surroundings is long lasting and will be felt by those who come after.
