A Year in Numbers (AYIN)

A YEAR IN NUMBERS (AYIN) - A yearlong creative project about numbers, starting 1st November 2020: I make little pieces of art every day for another year - this time it is all about numbers. Why numbers? - First of all: I am traumatized by mathematics in school, I panic when I have to calculate something in front of other people...BUT: I usually start counting for myself, when I become anxious or furious (which I become a lot these days). And somehow I think it is fun to calculate the digit sum of the numbers on license plates and the time display on a digital clock...I also love the aesthetics of numbers: For example, when there is an odd number of flowers in a bouquet, when I draw or make three things of the same kind, when I put things in a specific order, when the clock shows 11:11...

So, let´s see how this upcoming 365 days look like in numbers!

.. ..

Day 1 of 365

I'll make little pieces of art every day for another year - this time it is all about numbers. So here are the first steps... 

Day 2 of 365

I thought about the number of the day and tried to remember the amount of money I spent for my grocery shopping - but I think I am still on pandemic shopping panic and I forgot to look at the receipt. However, what I then noticed was, that I somehow went shopping like I had to fill Noah's Ark: I bought two of every kind. So the number of the day is two. 

Day 3 of 365

The time I finished my seminar today: 17.46. [rice on wood]

Day 4 of 365

Color by numbers! (I made a sweater out of this fabric today 😍)

Day 5 of 365

I couldn't focus on an idea, so I circled an 8 for 3 minutes.

Day 6 of 365

Number of the day: 2. 2 rubber boots on a "virtual" walk with @tanja8292 .

Day 7 of 365

The number of the day is 9:50. This is the length of Meat Loaf's song "Bat out of Hell". And this is my homage to the album cover.

Day 8 of 365

Number of the day: 46. 46 days until Christmas Eve. 🎉🎄🥂 I try to give myself some bright look-out here. 😅

Day 9 of 365

Number of the day: 3. I made a third sweater today. That's 3 sweaters in a week or so...I can't stop. 🙈😅
