Jim Lively: 4,827 Mornings

Video installation

Jim Lively performed a ritual for 4,827 mornings before going to work at A Fortune 500 Company. The dress code called for conservative business dress consisting of charcoal gray suits, white (or pale) shirts and the obligatory neck tie. ‘4,827 Mornings’ captures the then corporate attorney’s selection of the perfect shirt, tie and dress shoes each day.

The video focuses on texture and the subtle patterns of the shirts and ties. Filmed from three different angles, ‘4,827 Mornings’ is a non-stop collage, rotating 365 degrees to represent the passage of time through ritualized morning tasks.
