any recommended references/readings!pls help!

I’m interested in the concept of ‘the trace’ in spatial terms as my thesis topic this year for interior design. Why do we leave traces behind, what do they do for/to the space,how do they influence space, functionality, implications and more of ‘the trace’/‘traces’. If you have any websites, readings,articles,books,images,painting,scultures,exhibitions that come to mind regarding this topic,please drop in a line. Thanks. I’m in desperate need of help… :neutral_face: :cry:
