Calendar Year

Calendar Year is an audio and fabric tent installation constructed using a quilt that was compiled from February 2017 through January 2018. Once inside the tent, you can sit or lie down and listen to a recording of selected journal entries from that year.

Each square in the quilt represents one day from the year and uses color to code the emotional impression of each day according to one of three factors: health, work, or relationships.

Calendar Year was exhibited during DC Listening Lounge’s Sound Scene: Mapping Memory at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden on July 7-8, 2018.

This project was supported by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
