Traces, 2012–2018

A series of photographs of simulated crime scenes, in which luminescent chemicals are used for the forensic examination of trace human substances. They were taken in the Crime Scene House, a teaching facility within Teesside University’s Forensic Science department, where students practice forensic evidence collection and photo-documentation. However, the composition and method I used - long exposure in near complete darkness, with or without ultraviolet light - contravene strict forensic protocol. This work was produced during a year-long artist's residency at the university in collaboration with Dr Tim Thompson, supported by Leverhulme Trust.
