Time and Time Again

Noa Mobilio


Utilizing art as a method of self expression has always been crucial to how I live my life.
I believe the key to living a fulfilled life is by doing things that excite you, and a fear of mine is getting stuck down the wrong path. Time and Time Again is a carousel book consisting of five pages of gouache and digital painting that are hand cut and stitched together. The book depicts an average day in the mundane life of Mr. Clockman, who is trapped in an endless cycle of the monotonous work day. We all feel the stress of time passing us by as well as finding the right things with which to fill that time. The clock is ticking whether we like it or not, and the only way to drown out the sound of this internal ticking is by immersing ourselves in the things we love.

As the Department of Art and Art History’s 2022 BFA class’ time at UConn draws to a close, we look back fondly on the time we spent together and the memories we made along the way. Although we now look forward to our creative futures, we wish to say thank you and farewell to our devoted professors and advisors who’ve worked alongside us throughout these transformative years.
