Traces // Impressions Chain
The ‘Impressions’ chain is a traditional interlocking chain that acts as the blueprint for this collection. These forms are abstracted as the cyanotype prints become less apparent. This chain explores overlooked details; therefore, subtleties define this design. Each link is carefully reworked to enhance the point of contact between connecting components. Using controlled impact on overlayed links to leave subtle impressions on each, I have tried to exaggerate the temporal characteristics of a well-used artefact. Inspired by the habitual traces objects gain through use, this chain emphasises the idea that tiny marks, scratches, and scuffs (often overlooked) contextualise lived experiences.
