Day 11

I will be unable to retain all of this day within my memory. As hard as I try, part of it will become more elusive as time passes by. I will be unable to retain it within my mind. I will let go of the memory piece by piece. This does not mean that I consider this day to be unimportant. The events it contains may not fuel my emotions enough to retain the memory. However, I will always know this day as the vehicle that moved my life forward. I can recognize this magnificence within all of my days. A day is a single piece within a jigsaw. Once completed, it reveals the masterpiece that is life.

27 Days

27 Days is a series of transient sculptures each representing a single day. The sculptures are made from natural materials where stones are shaped into different patterns. My behavior shapes the nature of each day, how I move the stones shapes the sculpture that represents it. These temporary sculptures are also meditations upon a day. Over many days we can see patterns emerge and slowly life changes, but within a single day this pattern is elusive. We are making decisions and responding to life’s challenges but we do not know what we are creating. To meditate upon a single day is an act of consciously observing your life as it unfolds.

Artworks were then created from the photos of those transient sculptures. Those works represent viewing each day with hindsight. There are similarities, but the memory of the day is different to the experience within the moment.
