Andrea Anastasio

Fingerprint is a visual fable for our times, celebrating resistance to state surveillance and control. Actual fingerprints, silkscreened onto the pages of the book, create progressively complex patterns, transporting the fingerprint from the world of forensics and law into the freeing world of art and imagination. A brief historical note on fingerprinting and security-related practices frames and anchors this unique work of art in Indian and global contexts. Fingerprint is silkscreen-printed by hand on handmade paper.
