Day 19 – Jina Wallwork

 

Day 19  

 

I can see the sun travel across the sky. Its light reveals the golden beauty within each moment. I do not wish for this day to end. It contains so many wonderful moments; I hope my eyes are capable of perceiving their greatness before they pass. This day does not contain a major event, to feed my excitement. This day is filled with a collection of tiny joys, an array of simple pleasures. There is nothing different within the events of today. I perceive them differently because I feel content. I look within my heart and I discover a new appreciation of all that surrounds me. I feel as though I am blessed, and because of this I view the world as a blessing.

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.
