365 days is a photographic project created in 1995-1996 ,explores that ambiguous interval between dreaming and waking that we all experience every morning. This existential interlude between states, when the mind is still slow and groggy from the dreams of the night before, is the place on which Beatriz Ruibal trains her photographic eye. The constant flow of time in which we anxiously founder, feeling that we have lost our way, is structured here like a calendar. We discover the need to organise time in order to measure it, which in turn allows us to pinpoint our location within that intangible course. Photography is the tool she has chosen to capture this process. The freezing power of the snapshot is a way of resisting the inherent transience of human life, material proof of the fact that we truly exist. Every morning, over the course of 365 days, she photographed herself as soon as she awoke.
The everyday, for an entire year, the same photograph, though the setting might vary. You open your eyes each day at the same time, the first thought crosses your mind, and a few seconds lapse until you remember to take the photo—there, another image stored on the film in the camera. The feet are on the ground now. Taking time in your arms and then gazing at it, dissecting it or, better yet, letting its transparency settle.
