A series of visual representations performed through exploring, responding, and collecting ideas and information acquainted with my new city (Providence), colleagues, and self.

The weather abucus documents the twelve hours of day recorded. Six hours of daylight and six hours of nightlight. Typeface Dotner_3x4, structured on a 3 X 4 grid that relates to the 12 dot grid created for documenting the weather. The shape is bassed off the positive oval structure of medical tape found at Ocean State Job Lot. Each roll signifies the hand on a 24-hour clock. Each roll is based on a 360 degree rotation to show hour, minute, and seconds. Inspired by Karl Marten’s Three Times (in Blue and Yellow).
