Trace collectors: MFA Thesis - MetalEom, Min Jae (2020-05)Everything around us has been touched, used, cracked, broken – evidence that reveals an object’s existence and experience. I create simple surfaces and forms that when carried on the body, slowly gather traces of the wearer. The marks that are collected through these time-based works are not simply scratches, dents and stains; rather, they become a witness, a form of archive embodying the history and coexistence between user and object. These truly unique traces share a memory with the wearer, accumulating sentimental value and highlighting the most overlooked and intimate forms of contact.
