Days and Nights


Days and Nights
 
In addition to the Animal Years (2002-2014), based on the Chinese calendar, I documented a day and a night each year in the same place, with two- or three-hour intervals, or sometimes during the following year. This is a current project in the sense that a compilation of the video works created of these documentations remains to be done:
