Breathing is the most essential movement. What traces does our breath leave, hanging in the air? What of further extended movements, the day-in and day-out expressions of our dreams and aspirations. What traces do they leave, hanging in the air?

Aspiration Traces is a study of movement and an experiment in representing interaction with the enveloping air visually, using brush and vegetable dyes. It is also a gradually unfolding observance of the most essential movement, by which we establish ourselves in a reciprocating relationship with the air.
