Description:

Though simply rendered, tally marks have the unique ability to signify the passing of time. I thought about how they are often expressed as marks that count ‘up’ days of unrest or torment — like tallies on prison walls — instead of marks that count ‘down’ towards some celebratory event. There is a sense of desperation and longing in this space to break free from the current circumstance, yet hope may prevail in patience.  Click here to view Anticipation.
