Winner of the Environmental Award, Braunschweig (DE), 2007

The piece translates the concept of the fingerprint portrait to the public space. The technical infrastructure of our constructed environment, power and water lines, and sewage systems remain invisible as long as they are intact and in working order – thanks to uncountable individuals who maintain and repair these urban supply lines in the underground. This series seeks to show appreciation for these individuals in the form of fingerprint portraits.
