In the series Counting Systems, referring to visual/physical ways of representing labor, I assign value to objects that otherwise have little or no monetary/practical value. The work explores concepts of labor including necessity and leisure and are presented by images of tools used in recreational actitives. I associate these activities with having or not having the privilege of time to enjoy them, such as gardening or fishing to sustain oneself versus ornamental gardening or fishing for sport.
