Revisiting my soul
Everyday at midnight another day in the calendar passes.
I’ve selected ice cube trays to represent the calendar.
The ice cube tray I used was 7×2. Add three trays side by side and you have a 6 week calendar.
I started with the dimension of my hanging calendar 26″x13″ as the overall size for the drawing. It then became dyptic because of the representational (positive) days spent and the (negative) days ahead.
The blue wash is a chemical formula used in printmaking known as a cyanotype.
The cyanotype is sensitive to light and exposes a bright blue.
Because the calendar comes from the sun, I see this as the ideal medium to represent time passing.
An array of dishes catching.
Condiment cups and tacks. Equal in width to my wingspan.
My arms stretch out and so do the cups.
Ketchup is gathered with a Catch dish.
Radio, light, radar waves are gathered by a dish.
Game play of an athlete is often limited to their wing span. An athletes graspable catch dish has limitations.
In a 24 hour time frame, I’ve attempted to equalize the amount of calories consumed for those burned.
For every item ingested, I’ve dipped the bottom side of that item in coffee and put the footprint onto paper within the perimeter of a cafeteria tray.
The drawing is signed with my weight, height, birth date and sex; the data required for my heart rate monitor to ascribe an accurate reading.
On the backside of the paper, totals are tallied with the aid of nutritional facts from packaged goods and fat& fiber book. Included is an image of the heart rate monitor I wore for the 24hr period
