A timed piece consisting of the artist's nuclear family and its history. The pieces on it are: the family (Grandfather, Grandmother and artist) and the inclined slab, a metric of the life lived together. The pieces move across the surface of the slab in a duration of 28hrs, the age of the artist at the time of creation. This work aims to show the transition of the family unit as a microcosm, one that is dragged along by the sheer pull of time and gravity. During its presentation one of the pieces disappears and the remaining two drift apart. The three pieces are constructed from colored paper and are tracked to the underside of the slab as a motor vibrates on the lower end of the slab and carries the pieces across. The elapsed time is ~28hrs.
