Abstract: This thesis exhibition explores how daily rituals, over time, make up the rhythm of life. My artistic process is rooted in self-observation while engaging in my daily rituals. This exploration began by using photography to focus on my daily rituals concerning the food I eat. This led to the development of repetitive mark-making, and ultimately to my exploration of daily rituals in general, and the visual rhythms they create. My thesis work consists of four pieces including drawing, photography, writing, and artist books. The pieces expose subtle variations found within the mass-repetition of a similar unit. These variations develop patterns which are formed by the accumulation of information over time. Time plays an important role in my discovery: while I can control the creation of each small part, over time, the greater whole reveals its own unique visual rhythm.
