'Trace' is a manmade interpretation of geological phenomena / strata. It is comprised of surplus materials from plaster casts and sculptures collected over time. A trace of other peoples work existing in the piece, echoing the trace of man in the universe.
the deeper the bond, the better you fight.

Kiki Smith - Lilith, 1994 - Bronze, silicon, and glass.
“In medieval Jewish lore, Lilith was Adam’s first wife. When she demanded to be Adam’s equal, she was evicted from the Garden of Eden. Lilith flew away to the demon world, replaced by the more submissive Eve. Smith catches us off guard with Lilith’s pose and placement. Most sculptures receive our gaze passively, but Lilith stares back with piercing brown eyes, ready to pounce.”
my mother told me this story over and over when I was little
"Always be Lilith, never Eve"
