Passings

Terike Haapoja

‘Passing’ consists of thermo-camera recordings of the heat traces left by human bodies. A woman, a man and a child lie down on their platforms, remain for a few minutes and then step away. Each person leaves behind a figure created by their body heat, which takes approximately 30–60 minutes to vanish. These recordings are projected onto three low platforms. After the figure has disappeared another person lies down on the surface leaving a new trace.
