One Year: one hour a day
for 365 days

2011, Somerville, MA

This sculpture is the first in a series about time made visible. It is my own personal calendar, representing one year. I followed these rules: bead one hour a day with white beads, add a red bead to mark each hour, and a black bead to mark each month. This was repeated for 365 days. Because of days missed, which are marked in the sequence by a small black bead, my one year actually took me a year and a half to complete!
