The Most Important Month of My Life (2015)
60 photographs, taken twice per day for 30 days at randomly-generated times
The Most Important Month of My Life presents a highly incomplete record of one month in the life of the artist, whose phone was programmed to ring an alarm twice per day at randomly-selected times that were unknown in advance. The artist then took a photo of whatever he had been looking at when the alarm sounded. The title of the piece hints at momentous happenings during the month in question, but its true meaning remains elusive because of the extreme incompleteness of the photographic record. Individual images in the series may reflect important events or locations, or may instead depict moments of little or no meaning that would otherwise have been quickly forgotten. The series of photos taken together thus hints at disparate narratives about the month as a whole and its meaning; any viewer's interpretation of events relies as much or more on the imagination of that viewer as it does on the photographic evidence itself.
