Project based on the correlation that exists between fingernails, tectonic plates and Moon, three bodies that move at the same speed.
Approximately, fingernails grow at an average of 3.8 centimeters each year; the speed at which the plates of the North American and European continents separate every day. This is also the speed at which the Moon tirelessly drifts away from us, moving away in its gravitational spin around the Earth. The work is photographed in Iceland, the only place on the planet where two tectonic plates can be seen separating above sea level.
Following this journey, I made a calendar featuring moon phases and used it to trace the movement of the moon through the movement of my own body.
