Birth Day by Sam Winston

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.
