SPOTtimespotTIME – Conceived in 2015 ( LIGAR II)
The artwork will be emerging and encouraging participation throughout the UK cities in Summer/Autumn 2015 2016,2017, 2018, 2019 2020 2021
The work asks us to consider our own changing identity. How do we feel when we are asked to handover our fingerprint? It has become evident during the walkabouts that there are a large group of people choosing to live ‘off grid’ because of the changing social environment. Forensics research and pioneering work with DNA analysis will provide some of the scientific answers, but what about the social impact? . SPOTtimespotTIME documents in real time these changes. Robinson says: “Given the current political climate I am particularly pleased to be doing something so levelling. A fingerprint does not show difference, only how similar we all are.”
Conceived in Bristol in 2015, the artist walks all day to gather fingerprints from all sections and areas of society. The finished artwork will include panels of fingerprints held in clear resin, and collected from cities visited across the UK and also different time events emerging as a relevant social document. Elaine has captured the changing political arena by asking the UK and European Parliaments and Assembly’s to contribute to the emerging installation.
The installation is being created by asking for a fingerprint to document our relationship to each other and all life on earth.
The work will have a National Exhibition.
