My growing visual diaries and calendars are explorations of simple daily tasks that enable me to create chronological groups of elements that serve as touchstones that remind me of the physical act of creating, place holders for the rhythms of passing time and relics through which I can explore my personal history. Photographs of the elements are used to create further pictures, books and animations.
During 2015 I made a small picture from vertical lines, one line for each day of the year. I wanted to find a way to mark time passing without spending too much physical time or thinking too hard about what I was doing. During the year I was working on a number of other projects, both in and outside my studio (and I also moved studios). It was interesting for me to keep coming back to this one rectangle of paper. The animation below shows the growing, changing forest of lines.
