Copper Traces in Time: Hold

Copper Traces in Time: Hold is a response to the unprecedented times we currently live in, through storytelling and the creation of hand held copper discs

Copper surfaces have been shown to have antimicrobial properties with COVID-19 no longer detected on it after only 4 hours. While the virus is active the copper discs will be a reminder to act with care. Once the virus has abated the discs will be markers of this time which has drastically changed the way people live and will continue to affect our future.

Come and share your story and receive a copper disc.
