Touch of Gold

The significance of an object is unique to the hand that touches it. In this series of images, gold paint is used to illuminate the self as reflected in the items we interact with. While such impressions are invisible in every-day life, these depictions draw attention to the energy we transfer into lifeless objects in our environment.

Images are collaborative; by Kristen Williams, Marissa Billmeyer, Sara Murillo, and Kim Wronkiewicz

The objects. when necessary, were suspended with fishing line which was then removed in Photoshop by Kristen. See the original photos and their edits here: wine glass, cigarettes, book
