The fingerprint

2012 - mix


I print my fingerprint several times on self-adhesive labels and then cut them out.

I stick the individual stickers in places where I am. I give some stickers to people I know and ask them to stick the fingerprint in places where I haven't been. Thanks to Isi Hans, Dawid Liftinger and Stefan Tiefengraber, they are now sticking in different countries in Asia.


Other stickers, on the other hand, I hang in plastic bags in public places in Vienna or I print, sometimes every minute, my fingerprint on A3-sized paper with different materials (chocolate cream, lipstick ...)

The fingerprint

Several times I'm printing my fingerprint on sticker labels and cutting every single one out.

I'm sticking every single sticker on places where I'm staying.

I give some of the fingerprint stickers to friends and tell them to stick them on  places where I never have been before. Due to Isi Hans, Dawid Liftinger and Stefan Tiefengraber my fingerprint is sticking in several Asian countries.

I put some of the stickers into plastic bags and hang them in  public places. I print my fingerprint daily or even every minute with different kinds of materials on paper (chocolate-cream, lipstick ...)
