Olive Grove, Zakynthos
The One-Minute Wonders movies I shot at Zakynthos (the Greek island) back in October 2010 are now on show at Perth Theatre as part of the Encounters II: With Time exhibition.
Time is subjective and the way we experience time depends upon how much seems to be happening. These six one-minute movies have no soundtrack at the exhibition. I purposely stripped out the audio tracks hoping to fool people into thinking that the movies were still photographic images, as there's very little action except for the slight movement of leaves and grasses and the occasional flying insect, and I didn't want the soundtrack to give the show away, particularly as I'd gone to the trouble of presenting the movies in a digital frame which looks at first glance like a traditional picture frame.
This version of all six one-minute movies has acquired a soundtrack which I recorded at the official opening on Sunday 26th June. It's as if the movies have acquired the sound through experience.
There are now three layers of time – the time at which the footage was taken (October 2010), the exhibition opening time as represented by the new soundtrack (June 2011), and the timeline of the online viewer.
