The Canticles (the title means "little songs" in Latin) use papers and inks of different colors to embody the movement from morning to evening. The individual titles are drawn from devotional hymns of the Daily Offices, a tradition stretching back to medieval Christian monasticism. As in many religious and secular traditions, there is a link here between times of day and cycles of life.
