The everyday actions of a routine day are recorded and woven into Lanzavecchia + Wai's One Day in the Life of V.M. on Earth quilt.

The words stamping process
Detail of words stamped onto Mylar strips
"On any routine day of V.M, it is marked by the objects of everyday actions. However on Another Terra, daily life could be completely different. Like a mantra, on each woven golden Mylar strip is hand-stamped repeatedly in absolute chronological order, the individual names of objects encountered, touched, or used."
The weaving process
"A seemingly mundane fragment of life is then sealed, given permanence. These words re-materialize the possessions, their related everyday gestures and rituals of a day on Earth that is impossible to repeat ever again."
"One day in the life of V.M. on Earth is both the product of a private story and an artifact for the future."
