￼Trace (2009), an Investigation in the Invisible and the Transvisible, Singapore
Visual artist Les Joynes uses photography and performance to explore the transitions from visibility to invisibility. Trace (2009), a project conceived in Singapore by American artist Les Joynes, explores the transient presence of individuals in public space. The artist worked with performers who traced each others’ bodies in a series of choreographed poses captured in long exposure digital and analog photographs. With long exposure photographs he captured the outlines of the performers’ bodies and movements as red and white lines while the performers’ bodies themselves remained invisible. This interview took place on April 9, 2011.
