A day in a life is an installation consisting of a white book, whose pages are flipped from beginning to end by an airflow, over the course of one day. The object operates like an hourglass, showing the flow of time through a physical movement.

The project relates to the natural temporality of the day, where time is regulated by the cycle of light. The visitor rarely catches the moment when the pages are moving, but is given the condition of understanding intuitively the information.

The regular flow of white pages recalls minimal forms of completely abstract pre-cinema and highlights the arbitrary temporality of the moving image.A_Day_In_A_Life_Foto_Vesela_Mihaylova
