This object created type is inspired by the idea of time governing each and everday of our lives. The choice to use birthday candles was an intentional suggestion to this idea. Not only do we measure our years by our birthdays but we also allow each birthday to serve as a judgment for the year to come. This folly of believing that past, present and future are each separate entities is part of what creates such tension when it comes to matters of time. To realize that past, present and future are all parts of one whole can bring the realization that each action, within each year, within each day, and within each moment, becomes our past, creates our present and manifests itself within us to become the future.
