3 Score & 10
3 Score & 10 is a large, hanging sculpture made from 70 lengths of strings. Each string contains 365 hand-tied knots and altogether the piece contains a total of 25,568 knots – the exact number of days (including leap years) that you’d live if you reached your biblically allotted 70 years. It took me two years to make – it was started around Christmas 2003 and finished in January 2006.
3 Score & 10 is part of the Numbers Series; an ongoing collection of works about the meaning of time.
