The heaving and Sighing of Days(Umbrellas, Electronics, Motors, Excel Spreadsheet)

One of the artist's apparent tasks is to push the mundane into the realm of artistic or philosophical discourse. In this regard,The Microsoft© Excel spreadsheet sets the
benchmark for mundane. It takes a proust,for example, to describe the 'banality' of crumbling cakes in a mouth with words such as these:
“I raised to my lips a spoonful of the tea in which I had
soaked a morsel of the cake. No sooner had the warm liquid,
and the crumbs with it, touched my palate, a shudder ran
through my whole body, and I stopped, intent upon the
extraordinary changes that were taking place. An exquisite
pleasure had invaded my senses, but individual, detached,
with no suggestion of its origin. And at once the vicissitudes
of life had become indifferent to me, its disasters innocuous,
its brevity illusory.”

what happens to those without the ability to express themselves with words like this-If the magic and the poetry of words is lost on them -Can they then replace words with
numbers from Microsoft©'s spreadsheets? From October 2007 to January 2008, Every 10 minutes I would record an emotion and translate that emotion to an Integer between -10 and +10-The taxonomy of describing these emotions was purely an invention of my own. The
assignment of positive integers to "positive" emotions and negative integers to "negative" emotions was also subject to my cultural baggage, since even what constitutes emotion
will take us to the realm of the scientific squabble, everything is tragically unresolved and postmodern. These integers were then entered daily to a spreadsheet. A program then translates these integers into the 'heaving and sighing' of the umbrellas. The umbrellas are then, an attempt on my part on helping the computer mediate between the
inner world and the world of 'others'.
