Icons + Altars 2

These are a continuation of some of the pieces that I have shown in the Icons + Altars exhibition at the New Art Center in Newton, Massachusetts.

My Life So Far is the fifth Icons + Altars piece I  made. It is about the years that I have been alive, 1970-2005. Each shelf represents a decade, and each perpendicular row of pennies symbolizes a specific year. In the first row of pennies on the first shelf, there is only one penny. It is marked 1970 and represents my first year of life. In the last row of pennies on the last shelf, there are 36 pennies in four stacks. The stacks are marked 1970, 1980, 1990, and 2005. I turned 35 years old in 2005, therefore I started my 36th year of life.
