Day 9

A quiet day, a moment to explore the days that have gone before. It is a chance to find our perspective of all that has happened. This pause in the busy chaos allows us to consciously dissect each day. A chance to question the direction our life is taking. When we rest for a moment, our mind picks up the pace. We do not cease activity when we relax; we merely alter the activities we choose to do. There is so much to think and reflect upon. You need to gather your thoughts, in order to understand yourself. Relax your body and explore your mind.

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.
