Day 18 – Jina Wallwork

 

Day 18  

I can feel the glow of a new day. It is not only the presence of the beautiful morning sun; I can also feel a new day dawning within myself. I can feel a change, which will be unseen in the outer world. Today, I feel as though I’m returning to myself. As my troubles depart, I now understand why it was necessary to experience those lessons. My understanding has expanded, and I feel changed by what I have learned. I can feel this dawn, and it only presented itself to me once I had realized the true importance of the lessons I had faced. Smile with gratitude and know that you are wiser because of all you have overcome. As I remember my past difficulties as the perfect guides, I thank them, and I know I stand before a new beginning.

 

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.
