The installation was realized as a part of personal project I AM in 2009. The installation consists of 1440 (the number of minutes in а day) 10x15cm photos spread out on a floor, with 1-1.5 сm separating each image and forming a rectangle about 5×7.5 meters.
Each photo is a print of an electronic clock’s transparent screen, made in real time by using contact printing. Each minute of a day in real time was exposed (just like a negative) onto photographic paper with the help of a photographic enlarger and an electronic clock with a transparent display. All prints were made by placing the clock display (as a glass negative) directly onto the surface of photographic paper and then exposing it to light. The exposure time (an interval during which light falls on photographic paper) of each photo is 60 seconds (1 minute). The full exposure time of the installation was 24 hours — 1440 min — one day.
