One Thousand Cuts on Paper | One Thousand Hand Pushed Pins into Wall

Danielle Thomson

With this series, I am investigating body and time by employing various repetitive actions to record process. Movements with the body, like movements in life, can never be replicated precisely even if repeated. This is a reminder for us to remain present and embrace each moment's differences. The repetition in y work has allowed me to break free from the constant noise of the mind. Likewise, the repetitive presence of each element opens a space for stilling the mind.
