Touch is felt more than seen; we feel the glance of cloth’s fall, the weight of a hand, the press of a face against a glass window. Though its qualities are not always visible, to touch is always to be touched in return.
Photographing through a semi-opaque membrane created by Bayer MaterialScience, Hamilton is on site making photographic portraits of Art Show visitors that render in focus only what touches the material. The images record the experience of standing behind the film, where one can hear but cannot see. The resulting shallow focus, a consequence of the membrane’s visual qualities, emphasizes each point of contact and extends Hamilton’s interest in finding visual forms for tactile experience.
All art fair attendees are invited to participate without cost. Small unedited versions, 8 x 5.5 inches, are printed on site and posted for the length of the fair. Everyone photographed will receive by mail an ephemera portrait of someone from the series.
Large-scale portraits, 38 x 25 inches, are available for commission.
