Handmade cube (plexiglass, glue), forensic fingerprint powder ‘special gold’

I asked a factory to make a black acrylic cube. The workers were instructed not to wear gloves while working on it. This ensured that all traces of the making process (fingerprints, smudges, etc) were retained. Afterwards I applied forensic latent fingerprint powder “special gold” to the the cube,  revealing the object’s “hidden history” of traces.
