Infinite growth of material consumption in a finite world is an impossibility.

Francis A, Johnson a farmer from Darwin Minnesota started his ball in 1950 and to achieve a 7,900 kg. 4 metres diameter ball of twine he spent 4 hours a day, everyday for 39 years.
People say they don’t have time to do the things they want but I read that Canadians watch on average 4 hours of TV a day and or social media so what can one accomplish if they wanted to with even an hour a day for an extended period of time?

Kathleen Wicks - Memory (2013)
50” x 50”
paper, acrylic, pastels on canvas
This Autobiographical work incorporating collected pieces of paper; ID cards, airplane tickets, jean tags, attendance slips, newpaper articles, movie passes, dance tickets, post cards, bank book, event tickets… make up the base layer of “memories” in my former life as Kathy Simpson… maiden name. I question self identity, bound by time vs. the soul, absolute, eternal and timeless.
