Touched (2006)

Touched is a site-specific installation and public performative intervention in which I dust for fingerprints in both the gallery and city, mapping the physical body in relation to touch. The combination of performative action and forensic methods are used to expose the unseen motion of human touch and its relation to the shifting political climates that enforce criminalization. The use of scientific and law enforcing materials to display public physical interactions with space destabilizes dominant ideologies of safety, surveillance, and freedom by recontextualizing touch and identity within unseen power structures.
