Imprints is an exploration of emotions caused by absence and missing of a person close to one through the imagery of sewing, blankets and fragmentation. I investigate how a specific memory of my grandmother?s activities (sewing) and objects (quilt) can be used to mend the distance between us. The presence of my grandmother?s physical form will fade over time like footprints in the sand. But one thing that remains strongly engraved in my mind would be the time I have spent with her. Moreover, I have the will to preserve my memories and emotions of my loved ones within me._
