What if we could count how many days we have left?
How can I make an artwork that counts the days down?
What does one do with that finite knowledge?
Maybe one thing would be to really think about what one wants to leave behind.
A body of good work..
Gifts for each child and grandchild.
NOTE: all images in this post are of Hannah Claus' installation Our Minds Are One 2014, on now in the exhibition Reading The Talk at the beautiful Maclaren Art Centre in Barrie Ontario. The artwork refers to the Dish with One Spoon Treaty negotiated in the 17th and 18th centuries so as to ensure the shared sustenance of the 'bowl' or land between the Anishinaabeg and the Haudenosaunee peoples.
