Kalabash School of Music and the Arts has an annual practice challenge to encouraging students to flex their musical muscles for 40 days straight. As Ship Captain, I was asked to create a chart to track the over 100 student’s daily progress. Heavily inspired by the work of Agnes Martin, I did some math, grabbed a ruler and ended up creating a huge 17’ x 8’ foot grid made up of over 4,000 squares and dots.

Each week, teachers and students would up to the wall, find their name and place an orange sticker on the days they practiced. Day by day, the wall filled with orange dots while voids of grey and white were left to symbolize the days missed. I went in at the end and enlarged the small white dots to match the size of the orange.





 
The size and duration of this piece makes it the largest community art project I have lead thus far. To practice more concious, renewable efforts and to continue the theme of intention, the paper mural has been saved and will be converted into book covers for hand-made notebooks.
