Prompt: For this assignment, we were asked to create a book with our best abilities to demonstrate the idea of time progression.

My project was an inspiration driven to me when walking by “Fifth Avenue”. The general context refers to the way in which people can learn to count time according to the Avenue and Street number they are located at. For this idea to be arranged in my book, I used a specific format that gathered all of the “street signs” created with metal to combine diverse street names to a unified book. Forward to this, I placed some images inside the context, in between every metal where there are images and visual representations or each location so people can navigate and use it as an easier guide.
