‘Wee Ribbon’ is my own composite including crystallized urine documenting 365 samples of my own urine, one for each day of the year. The dates alongside each sample in the 'Wee Ribbon', have been recorded in a Drinks Drunk Diary identifying every liquid consumed.
I never imagined a waste product that we simply flush away could be so fascinating. My lifestyle is reflected by the colour range and intensity of each sample displayed as a ribbon of time reaching over 15 meters.
Through this self-documentation of my own body's materials I found there was a natural curiosity for onlookers to make direct comparisons. Many discovered key times in their life linking themselves to my practice which I feel suggested personal significance and identity.
