We want to be remembered.

We want to leave a mark and we all have an unique story to share.

The things we experiences, emotions we felt and moments we shared with others.  These stories are our most precious legacy.

I used the technique of imprints in clay to collect stories of people passing me by,

People chose an object they had with them, that carried a meaning or a characteristic information about them. When they left the mark of the object, they told me their story.

Some objects were tools, as photo camera.This inspired people to tell me about their carrier and aspirations as a photographer. Some, had a special piece of jewellery, that carried personal story about their family and struggle with illness.

this method gave me an new approach to ask people things they want to talk about and are meaningful
