Student Narrative

This piece is focused on a reflection about the act of leaving marks throughout the everyday life and how it relates to the language of printmaking. For 14 days the artist documented her bed right after she got up. In this sense, this book works as a translucent diary that shows the evidence of time overlapped and the relation between absence and presence o the artist's body.
