Basic arithmetic (2015) | 72 layers of acrylic on board; 63 x 51 cm

24 hour (continuous) assignment assigned to third year undergraduate painting majors. Students were instructed to begin and complete their self-directed task in the given period. Students were not allowed to sleep or leave the painting studio's building on campus during that time. I chose to continuously prime a surface -three times every hour at 20 minute intervals - in order to work as consistently as possible throughout the course of the assignment.
