ACT OF MAKING VISIBLE AND DATA AS AN IMAGE
The performance consists of a daily act of noting down hours spent and tasks included in my artistic practise. The artistic practice is not only considered in terms of artistic production but I intend to make visible all kinds of tasks belonging to practising art as a profession. Therefore the artistic practice is divided into five departments: Administration, Management, Art, Archive, and Production.
I register data in The Artist’s Hour Recording System (AHRS), a matrix that I have developed and keep adjusting alongside the research. The data is analysed and translated into visualisations of various forms, materials and emphases. The visualisations combine both informative and aesthetic qualities of an image.
Since October 2021, the performance has been carried out uninterrupted. In the project statement, I commit to continuing the performance until the end of my career as a professional artist.
