Playing with natural elements.
Tracing the passage of time through natural elements is part of my One Year project. In the first iteration of the project , time through leaves was not connecting to the letter content in that the letters were written at specific times in the year but the leaf/bract material accompanying them was static. In experimenting with natural materials found at different times of the year, I am trying to give the project content more coherence and cohesion.
The singular leaf or feather or chestnut or seed pod images underline the experience of being an individual going through time in prison. The combination stresses the idea that you are an individual amongst others doing time.
