THE NATURE OF A DOCUMENTATION
2006 video, 3:10min

The subject of this video is at the same time the subject of a course Daniel Beerstecher had during his studies at the Art Academy attended: “The qualities of a documentary”. He documented his own presence during this seminar in which he did not raise from my chair and tried to move as little as possible. The real time of 30 hours is reduced to 3 minutes in my documentary. Due to this extreme time-lapse he become the only constant in a situation dominated by permanent coming and going.
