366 Days - Installation

In December of 1999 I became very interested in the changing of the millennium; not in the fanatical Y2K obsession way, but more so in the historical context of being alive to witness the changing of the millennium. I decided to record this year of my every day life. I wanted to live each day of this year taking special note of my existence. I began to assemble a collection of moments that contained the remains and histories of my days. In the beginning of the year, the process was about making a 4X6” postcard each day. Towards the end of the year the process became more about collecting items and memories from each day. The arranging of the items and recording of them into the postcard composition happened later.

366 Days tells a story, records a history, and acknowledges the every day. It questions what is important and how an identity is defined. It brings attention to the fact that each day we are here, we have significance. We have a purpose, no matter how typical or unusual the day is. Each day is a gift that is part of our life's collection.

366 Days is a collection of 366, 4x6" postcards, one for each day of the year 2000. This gallery shows the installation of the exhibition in January 2001. The next gallery shows nine individual postcards.
