Artist Statement Submitted 2014Weathering Time is my visual diary, personal archive, and record of my changing body over the past thirty plus years.
Each month is captured on one roll of film. If I fail to take a picture the film is advanced so a blank image is recorded, creating a visual calendar. Sometimes friends and family are in the photographs and time weathers their bodies as well. For example, in the first twenty years two of my nieces age from infants to young adults, my body changes from young adult to middle aged, my parents grow into their eighties, and my father arrives on his deathbed. In the last ten years the aging process on my body becomes more obvious and my nieces appear with children of their own. In 2009 I am with my mother on her deathbed.
