Varying in intensity and content, dust is present everywhere in airspace. While cosmic dust is associated with dreamy beautiful visions, atmospheric dust, especially when perceived in the urban context, has largely negative associations. But the process of dust accumulating on surfaces of the built environment, forming patterns and inscribing marks, can have a different reading. Dust is an ever-forming fluid database constantly recording human actions and gestures.
Printing a photograph is an accumulation of pigmented dust on a surface. By photographing dust marks and printing them, the marks get formed again but this time fixed as a permanent record.
