On leaving an impression

Related studies project week #4: Project yourself and make an impression

Upon searching for various meanings of the word ‘impression’, I was drawn to this meaning: an effect of alteration. I decided to create an ephemeral land sculpture which like an impression, doesn’t last forever. I was inspired by Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty and went to the beach to create my sculpture. It took 47 min. until it completely disappeared under the tide.
