A series representing an absence of art.
As someone who struggles with procrastination, this series is about the time spent not making art, time I often feel guilty or anxious about. Using an automated process, one screenshot was taken every hour that my PC was turned on, recording what programs were open at the time, documenting what I was—or was not—doing. Each grouping represents one day, with each block the most common colour in each screenshot extracted from using an image analysis tool.
