Undocumented seeks to probe the inherent contradiction in the state of being ‘paperless’ by documenting the traces, signs and presence of undocumented individuals as they pass through the world. These traces might be very evident or barely perceptible. Their imprint might be indelible or ephemeral. 

Undocumented is about the invisible individuals who – because they do not qualify for regularised legal status – are precariously employed, with minimal access to public services, and live in constant fear of detection. 

A process-driven approach develops a picture of one woman’s undocumented experience.  Her identity protected, we see her domestic and institutional environments, alongside extracts from her personal documents, which reveal the undercurrent of her uncertain status.
