PeaceMeal Traced

Hello, my name is Diego Maranan. I'm one of the PeaceMeal organizers, a university teacher, and a member of the Manila-based human rights nonprofit, WeDpro. I also have an independent arts practice.

In 2007, my friend and internationally-recognized Manila-based artist Mark Salvatus started his Wrapped Traces project. Members of the public traced everyday objects and parts of themselves onto vertical surfaces The result was both intimate and evocative: the tracings remind the viewer both the presence and the absence of these objects.
