II. One Day

What happens in a boy’s life in One Day?

A whole lot of things—if you ask this four-year-old boy. A beach expedition, a mysterious falling star, a signal tower—for him, these are elements of a great adventure story.

But always in the background, there is something more. I use collage to illustrate the idea that reality is composed of layers—that behind that hill or behind that blue sky, another time dimension awaits, where the future resides. We once looked up at the stars to divine the future. How do we find this future now? Will there be a sign or a signal?

So in this boy’s story, I go backward in time, combining autobiography and fiction, to answer these questions. Are there signs and signals—harbingers of what he will one day become?
