Two windows having a moment together.
A story emerges every hour on the hour in universal coordinated time (UTC), marking the passing of time without keeping it.
Ambient recordings from different cities at separate times are procedurally sequenced in relationship to each other.
Your moment & my moment
are never quite the same.
In the beginning, there was the window. Now there are plenty of other things than windows. There is heat, ice, sweat, and Mickey Mouse. Not to forget blood: The dark and runny that pumps through veins carrying a tempo that makes possible the highest highs and lowest lows.
