Day 15 by Jina Wallwork

Day 15

On this day, I will hold my tongue. I will not speak from anger or sorrow. These are transient emotions that will pass in time. Perhaps, tomorrow I will no longer feel this bitter disappointment. Maybe, I will discover a new understanding that will explain the behavior of those who have caused this hurt. I will not speak today as it will only lead to future regret. I need to know that anger will not infuse my words. No words will pass these lips. I will not regret today, and I will not allow it to burden me as I travel forward. I cannot react to cruelty with anything other than silence. Tomorrow I will locate a space where I feel safe to speak.

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.

Not all of the artwork from this day is on the website. Buy the book My Visions of the Universe and view the whole series and more.
