Leave Only Footprints

This work started as series of ephemeral footprint actions created in Antarctica inspired by the environmental edict, 'take only photographs, leave only footprints' often quoted to guide human behaviour in the polar regions. Wider consideration of the concept of 'footprint' reveals the tensions and contradictions within travel, human activity, and environmental impact. The act of tree planting as part of this series is an attempt to reconcile the irreconcilable.
