The piece was made by recording, by hand, the date of every day I have been alive, on an old fashioned till receipt roll. It took many days to complete and, as such, it got longer as I was making it. It captures the length of life, the ennui of living, and the perceived necessity of making things 'count'. There is an irony that, in the age of mass personal data collection that we are unaware of, such a task is now trivial for machines. Entire lives are now recorded in this way. This piece is sold as a series of framed photographs.
