Life Signs, 1997

Inkjet prints on rag paper, audio, infrared-activated lights

Life Signs considered the act of photography as a self-surveillance impulse, where personal image archives define tangible human existence and experience. Without this cataloguing, only bodies remain, their traces left through daily routine soon erased.

The installation was lit and the soundtrack audible only when visitors triggered infrared beams. Without people present in the space, the work was invisible and inaudible.
