T56 [ time-effect ]
This is a project that has slowly changed—in fact that is the essence of the project itself. I originally started it as a way to make sure to keep my hands in the studio process, by making at least one piece a day. Part of the interest lies in deciding what constitutes a piece of artwork. Sometimes it is nothing more than a snapshot of a larger work in process. This project was started on June 13, 2005 and abandoned on September 15, 2005. Looking back a year later, I realized the value in having these daily visual journal entries and the project resumed on July 17, 2006.
This is the first T56: a (run on) statement of intention

Because of a romantic attachment to such ideas as a strong work ethic, the myth of the artist, daily practice, chopping wood, carrying water, etc., and following a desire to continuously make work, to avoid getting stuck, and maintain a belief in a quick aesthetic, as well as an observation that making bad work is better than making no work, and that most artistic attempts end in failure so a quantity is necessary for success, the following will be done:
I will produce one piece a day, starting today and continuing for at least one year, which will be collected and documented as a piece unto itself, which will be referred to as T56 and each day's piece will be referred to as T56 followed by the date, which will follow any number of aesthetics or ideas, which may contain seeds for larger, more ambitious pieces, but where each day’s piece will be complete unto itself, i.e. will be a completed work, something I would stand by.
