Tempo / Time (work-in-progress)


"nos ossos guardamos a essência do voo e na pele a solidão de muitos caminhos"
"in the bones we keep the essence of the flight and in the skin the solitude of many routes"*
Al Berto, in Apresentação da Noite

*a rough translation



My intention in this work was to explore the fleeting in the skin: the marks that seem to last forever but only do so when we hold on to them. They are the memories, and although they don't last forever and are distorted most of the times, in our head they seem everlasting - for a certain period of time.


Digital photographs of temporary marks on the skin made by applying pressure using specific patterns.
