Watermark

Watermark was a 90 minute intervention on Barbosa Park, Istanbul on 29 March 2012.  Claire painted water onto a course of adjacent paving stones, drawing a line that follows a prominent route taken across that space by pedestrians. The water dries and the line documenting the movement of the people fades and disappears, echoing the temporal nature of people's presence in that place.

I've used the skills picked up at Salford as part of the AA2A scheme to edit this excerpt together, along with the video editing facilities there.  Think this is going to be a really useful thing for my practice as it develops in the coming years.
