Monuments to the Missing Days (Day 08)
Photoreproduction print on heavyweight linen cover | 2022
On the 440th anniversary of the ten deleted days during the transition from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian Calendar in 1582, this new polychromatic rendition of a favorite series imagines the calendar dates as substantive architectural material. Each of the ten “monuments” was made on a date removed, from October 5th to October 14th.
