'Residue' documents a durational performance that took place in the vacant lot where my home once stood. I made rubbings on handmade paper and after 16 hours compiled a grave rubbing of the entire footprint of the house. These rubbings record what is left of the historic structure and my belongings, as well as the three-year accumulation of detritus. This artist’s book contains photo documentation of the performance and small selections of the actual rubbings. The act of reading imparts small amounts of residue onto the reader and the reader, in turn, leaves their mark on the pages of the book.
