Amy Albon’s practice explores aspects of ‘human trace’. Taking reference from Locard’s Exchange Principle that every contact leaves a trace, interest is directed toward the physical bi-products of often transitory and fleeting daily activities. The trace evidences the event.
Occurring en mass in the form of remainder residue and indentations, traces can be low in visibility and often viewed as aesthetically negligible. The work therefore transforms the ‘insignificant’ to ‘significant’ by making traces the focal subject matter.
