Referencing small devotional books used daily and as yearly calendars of spiritual practice, the installation “Book of Hours: Intervention” meditates on medical intrusions of the body to heal an illness. Each “book” is unique containing a relief of an object used in an “intervention” of the flesh or mind, or ones used in requesting an “intercession” from the universe, or those that provoke a memory providing solace. Objects include, for example, a needle, IV regulator, religious medallion, drugs, swab, bottle lid, key. In others, the book pages are manipulated to indicate the effects time has on the natural world. The white marble appearance speaks to memorialization of the individual, of medical procedures, of simple objects one contemplates visually and uses daily. The books are a collective experience; life is woven from our sensory encounters with objects, making them valued. Book of Hours acts also as a “memento mori”, a contemplative reminder of our own mortality.
