a day in the life
Simply, A Day in the Life is a sequence of porcelain time cards that stand as an archival record of time spent in the studio upon each visit. .
The piece is both a confirmation and denial of alienation that dominate Karl Marx’s (1967) ideas on an impoverished everyday experience. For Marx labor becomes commodity, and the imposition of artificial labor and production cycles imbue daily life with feelings of tedium and repetition. For me the cards take on a repetitive narrative, but upon closer inspection reveal an individuality through difference.
