Each pad is mopped in a specific location collecting the detritus left behind during a certain time span. The material that is present is then documented and enlarged to capture that space and time, not unlike the act of photographing a place. The objects transcend the common form of dirt, hair, or skin to become something more. The viewer becomes consumed with finding shapes or signs inside the image. This act parallels how "signs" or "visions" have shaped humankind and our understanding of the universe, as well as the trace we all leave on it.
