From May 10, 2021 to August 16,2021 I created 99 works at the rate of one a day. The parameters for the project were fairly strict: a limited number of pre-selected papers and a combination of digital printing, coloured pencil, and paper cutting. The works embody my experience of continuing with life during a pandemic. Each grid-based cut design is an asemic word representing human experience while the torn edges of the paper and the colour gradients of the printing and coloured pencil reflect the ongoing cycles of the natural world. These cycles have been disrupted by human activity, but the sun still rises in the east and the seasonal pattern still runs its course. Colours and designs were selected and created to reflect my personal environment each day.
The works are small —14 cm/5.5 in— for two reasons. It made it possible to complete each piece in less than a day, and it produces a sense of intimacy. The viewer must come close to the work to really see it.
