Day 3

Time

Medium + Method: permanent poster markers from the late 1990s.

The Image: There’s not much to say about this image. It’s a birthday cake rendered in a childlike fashion. It’s a visual reminder about the passage of time.

The Backstory: Today, my dad turned 70. He received a flurry of text messages early in the morning not wishing him a happy birthday, but instead sharing sad news that a relative had passed away suddenly at the young age of 49. Too many emotions to convey. Not enough time. We must make the most of what we have, which today was finding permanent markers that had somehow beat the odds and maintained their juice over two decades. So here’s to celebrating what we have.
