Weight, Clock, Calendar, Scale, 7 x 2 x 2′, 2014

At the top is the bird clock that my mother loved, just down from that is her yearly, monthly, and daily calendar, at the bottom is a scale. These are the things she used daily and more than daily to keep track of the things she loved and cared about. The clock has the numbers of the weights on the scale, the calendar is open to the month she died and instead of days has hours, and the scale has the names of her family in stead of the weight numbers. My mother weighed and recorded her weight in her calendar daily, she kept track of her family in her calendar and kept track of what she was doing with her time on the clock.
