Spending Time

Commons Gallery, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

October, 2019

What is the difference between spending time wisely and wasting it? And why's that? 


In a demonstration of applied learning, I display the potential outcomes of three acts of prolonged observation. The view framed by my studio window is drawn repetitively, plants growing are live-streamed, a cactus's growth is measured, and a palm frond is drawn to-scale. In the middle of the exhibition is an open drawing area with an informational, or instructional handout.
