Every day a piece of art was made

The work is made up of 365 smaller mixed media pieces, each 4”x4” (10x10 cm) in size.  Each piece was done as a reflection of an individual day. One piece was actually made on each day of 2011.  During the year the pieces were photographed and could be followed on Facebook, Tumlbr and a blog for the project. The photographer David Wilson also documented the project.

The blog has a detailed explanation of the idea behind each individual piece.

Each piece is 4"x4" (10x10 cm), mixed media, acrylic on canvas.

Some of the elements used include:
old maps, vintage postcards, postage stamps and travel ephemera

sand paper, foil, and origami paper
candy and snack wrappers, food packaging and labels
ground coffee
cigarette cards
googly eyes
Joshua Tree and Eucalyptus leaves, sage collected in the desert
MUNI Fast Passes
