This project is an attempt to record and recognize each day of the turn of the millennium between November 1998 and February 2001.
It was empowering and meditative to invent a personal code for those two years using an alphabet of symbols. Three pieces of cloth acted as a base for the others; a large red square for the calendar month, a blue or gray square representing the weather and thirdly, a smaller one dyed the colours of a human body. On top of these constants are a variety of fabrics in torn or cut shapes that vary with the daily events. For example, a leaf shape is the symbol for a perfect day. A triangle shape represents time spent parenting one or more of my 4 children, each a different colour. A sheer piece of fabric tells me that the ice was in.
