Day 4

Does tomorrow bring change or does change define the nature of what tomorrow will be?

 

To wait is not enough. I learn and understand patience yet I am beginning to realize my dependents on the acts of others. I am scrambling for solutions as if I am the only person who can create change in my life. I am looking at things I can do to create improvements, but I am not in control. My life contains many influences and connections. Solutions are sometimes held within the hands of another. This day can obscure a solution from view but it cannot remove its presence. On this day it is hidden. Maybe tomorrow it will come into view.

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.
