Mission: One apple a day, January - June 2013, 2013, dimensions variable, apple, ink
To buy an apple everyday creates my installation piece, by holding time from the past to now, the immediate moment. This action is a way to work against the process of decay. I have bought one particular type of apple every day since January 2013 and marked the date, in what has become a simple game-like activity in everyday life.
The apple I bought today connects directly back to the first one when my mission began, representing the basic passing of time between then and now. However, on some days, errors happen within the narrative. For example, even a newer apple has already gone rotten, and buying different types of apple is sometimes unavoidable because the type I wanted was out of stock. There are also absences that mean I was unable to get an apple on that particular day. The involvement of my personal experiences within the environment appears in the time line of apples under the law of nature, and so reflects a relationship between myself and the world.
