a study of a day. 2022. Handbound. 12 x 9.4 x 3.6 cm. (4.72 x 3.70 x 1.41 in). 24 incense sticks, 24 sets of transparencies, 24 cyanotypes, book cloth, and book board.
a study of a day is a record of time passing. Each incense stick burnt for approximately 1 hour. I lit 24 incense sticks, one for each hour of the day, and collected the ash that came from them. I encased the ash from each stick in transparencies and then made cyanotypes with them. I deposited the end sticks of the incense in a little glassine envelope, including a part of the original, actual incense sticks from which the ashes came.
