0°/Mapping the Imaginary

I was given a brief called ‘The Single Shot’ that questioned the relationship between the still and the moving image over one minute. This timeframe involves 1,500 stills played in a sequence of 25 frames per second, and this became the starting point of Mapping the Imaginary. I began a series of one-minute lapse films, each made up of 1,500 stills shot during sunset, always facing south. I used locations at various points along the prime meridian line, 0° longitude. This rigid constraint of time, space and location gave the project a scientific quality, at the same time as allowing a controlled serendipity into the equation.
