Death Day Re-visited//Ten Magazine Product!

I have always been obsessed with the fundamentals of time and have feared it on many occasions, in connection to my fading period of life, i have felt the need to create a respectable life, and hope others will remember me for at least one generation. Funny how Human life is remembered but sparingly and often merely for text books and literature, if famous or infamous, but with a disconnection of human emotion.

So i set about to redefine the concept of “What if We knew the day we would die?” and set it in a period of time, thus creating the time mechanism, in the style of a wrist watch. I created it out of paper, one because of time and limited access to materials, but also because i enjoy the playful infancy it creates, this being imagined from a sense of nostalgia as a child, obsessed with how old i’d be in 2005, and then reaching 2005 and wished i wasn’t 20! Its a mockery of mans obsession with Life, its disintegration and the inevitable.
