Description, Abstract, or Artist's Statement

Twenty-four hours. These hours are the graph paper we plan our lives according to. This small window of time is a rut humanity tends to get stuck in. Up close, a successful day is defined by checklists and word counts, leaving little room to credit hours spent on personal growth that cannot be understood under the scrutiny of a microscope. Although these hours chart our lives, there is much more that we count in a day. The moments. The constant rhythm of crescendos and diminuendos made up of our experiences. Stopwatches, countdowns and clocks don’t record the parts that make up a life. When we take one second of one hour to be appreciative, the intricate details of life become illuminated as a whole.
