The Book of Clay

Throughout these weeks I have been making a Book of Clay together with people I met in the park:

The clay tablets were a ‘contact sheet’ between me and park users, and between us and the surfaces of the park.

 

Pressing the clay onto the park, I received the pieces back with impressions of the people I met on one side- big and small fingers, shoes, pram wheel tracks, dog paws, and the textures of the park on the reverse- stones, grass, leaves, twigs, earth, pavement, railings.

At the end I gathered these fragments together, looking for an image or message in the gaps between the pieces.
