By the time you’ve read this sentence three people have been born into the world. By the time you’ve read this sentence two will have passed away. Birthday is a work which sets out to record every individual birth and death over a twelve-hour period. Initially imagined to be realised in real time, marking the beat of each life with a small circle. It soon became apparent it is impossible to keep up with real time events and it takes months to graphically capture 12 hours of births and deaths.
