karratha winter solstice: 977999 frames, documents the entire duration of the shortest day, June 21, 2012. The work is filmed inside the miners donga that i lived in while working with artist craig walsh. This clip shows the entire day in 3 minutes, but the work is intended to play in real time, synched with the time where it is located. in this work i am interested in exploring time as a constructed point of reference. the numbers are counting the video frames as the footage unfolds, foregrounding the arbitrary nature of the construct that is imposed on our duration.
