I would like to propose a celebration... in honor of us. Life as I see it, is a collectively growing experience birthed by history. Your and I’s daily events are ever exponentially evolving upon all that which has preceded. Each occurrence is part cause, part eﬀect — part chance, part choice all in randomly ﬂuctuating ratios. As each moment has taken a life time to shape, each will shape a lifetime. Success and failure, delight and struggle, being and nothingness are our invaluable experiences. Recognizing our actions and experiences as important we ready ourselves for growth. This piece is a celebration, for all that we do and all that we are.
The base lettering in the Our Life installation is a custom typeface built inspired by the deco-letters and showcard painters of the 1920s-30s. Constructed entirely out of hand cut French Paper and grommets, the letters are connected by the hands and reflect the celebratory nature of banners found at Showers, Birthdays, Graduations, Over the Hill, and Retirement parties.
