8 minutes 20
seconds UPDATES 2005
part of the ongoing 8min20sec project
The ongoing FL@33 project '8 min 20 sec' started as a concept in 2002 when we first started to record appropriate digital video footage. The first printed sequences were however not produced until 2004 when five of them were exhibited at the first FL@33 (and Stereohype) solo show in Paris that took place between December 2004–January 2005 at the Zotoprod space. Shown here are artworks number 6 and 7 of this ongoing series.
They are entitled 'Millennium Bridge, London' and 'Little Venice, London' and were first published in a special
2005 edition of Swiss graphic design magazine idpure as part of an 8-page-FL@33-profile they featured in May 2005.
'8 min 20 sec' is a series of photographic artworks. The concept is based on capturing the city (in this case London) in
video sequences of 8 minutes and 20 seconds (= 500 seconds). Each
sequence was then reduced to 1 frame per second. The resulting prints
are based on the individual collections of 500 frames (each) and are
positioned within square compositions (40x40cm and 90x90cm each).
