Recently, I conducted an interactive performance during which participants could choose a small pane of handcut glass and decorate it with their fingerprints with black ink/paint. Then, we stacked the glass panes on old overhead projectors. As the stacks grew, the layers of prints became more complex, creating a topographical sculpture, tracing/marking/documenting our temporary existence in the performance space and gallery. As more people added their panes one amorphous dark cloud emerged, creating one hovering organism made of everyone’s “DNA”. The light shining through through the glass highlighted the intricate, labyrinthine patterns between and within each person’s prints.
