12 seconds (2017)
An analog camera, a tripod, 6 rolls of 120 film.
Performance, 5th of November. Arcosanti, Arizona
Duration: 2 hours 

An action based site-specific performance at Arcosanti, Phoenix. 12 seconds is a live performance where I attempted to lay on top of the rock before the camera shutter was relased.

I ran naked towards the rock, breathing heavily as I tried to reach the top of the rock before I heard the sound of the shutter going off.  Ones I heard the shutter the heavy breathing stopped, I turned around and walked down, rewinded the camera, pressed the shutter and ran towards the rock. The performance ended when I no longer had any rolls of film left.

Documentation from live performance conducted on the 5th of November 2017.
