Chalk Line
March 2009

The artist snapped a chalk line at the beginning of each minute for 15 hours. The artist moved around the circumference of the circle about 6 degrees each snap to complete the circle at the completion of the hour. Viewers were able to walk through the chalk, track it away, and the lines would be renewed by each pass. The chalk was built up over time and added to the visual passage of time.
