Chris Hamnett: UNTITLED 2014 #13

As a child I was compelled to write consecutive numbers onto pad paper. The memory of this act is now used to create works that concentrate on recording the process of counting. Little, if any, consideration of aesthetics is undertaken, as my focus is solely on the actual process of ‘just counting and writing sequential numbers’. With Untitled 2014 # 13, I determined each time I made an error the sequence would begin again starting at the number one. This strategy accentuates the compulsive and repetitive nature of the counting.
