Time and tide wait for no woman and the ceaseless spin of seconds slipping by ultimately defines our existence. How we treasure or waste our minutes accumulate into the experience of our lives. In an increasingly digital, online and virtual world, we become more 'connected' yet often at the sacrifice of being present in the here and now. If our most precious possession is our existence, time is its currency. How do you spend yours? The artist invites you to enter her digital realm via the QR code included in the works to ponder this question and more; What’s Your Poison?
