Practicing to Be Invisible, 2007
Installation: powdered sugar
Dimensions: variable

The footprints are made of sugar and are extremely fragile.
They are vulnerable to even the slight est environmental factors.
A summer breeze, a light rain, just about anything presents a
threat. Intact, the unmistakably human prints are the residue of a
presence. Over time, perhaps a long time, perhaps only a moment,
the prints disappear and are absorbed completely into the
environment.
