Day 13 by Jina Wallwork

Day 13

 

Time passes so quickly. There are so many things I wish to do. I keep thinking that I will always have tomorrow. What a magical day tomorrow must be; in my mind it contains every possibility and desire. My vision of tomorrow inspires me, life could be many things. Tomorrow seems far removed from what can actually be accomplished within this moment. As I plan for tomorrow each day brings it closer towards me. Tomorrow is not simply another day. Tomorrow contains endless possibilities, and its perfect companion is the practicalities of today. The tomorrow that exists within my mind could never arrive without the encouragement of my actions today. Strive for greatness and inspire tomorrow to be everything that it can be.

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.
