This installation deals with aspects of identity in two parts of the composition. The first being the fingerprints pressed into the small pieces of porcelain (made visible with a single drop of red glaze) which come from the hands of many different artists. This collective identity is placed on the floor, and aimed towards the viewer in order to build a sense of movement and projection. The second part is the wall component, lighly framed in the same outline as the floor, and made up of hundreds of overlapping strands of fiber that become so dense in the center that they produce the image of a red dot.
