ART 358

Project Description:
A shot of apple cider vinegar, 13 vitamins, gluten-free diet, and portion control. These are all aspects of my routine that I dread but they keep me going.

In my work, I explore my concept of routine as composition. Much like repeated elements in a composition, repeated elements in my routine are what keep me going, help me function, and make me a successful composition and functioning human. So why do I get bogged down by the objects that are supposed to be helping me? As a woman who has been on some sort of diet since age 12, it was difficult to come to terms with the fact that my body is dependent on another object (or twenty) to fully function. By creating functional pieces specifically made to accompany these unenjoyable aspects, I intend to make the elements of my routine that I dread, something to look forward to.
