"Space melts like sand running through one’s fingers." Species of spaces, Georges Perec
Empreintes takes snapshots of our movements and questions their remnants.
Is that possible to make our gestures tangible? How can an imprint of a gesture exist?
Through the tracking of their hands in motion, visitors create shapes in space. These marks evolve and warp as time goes by.
Empreintes plays with the space between private and public space. It invites visitors to go through the matter, to reflect themselves in it, to transcend it.
