Description
García Gómez digitally photographed the horizon at a point off the coast of Havana at regular intervals for one day. Using Photoshop software, he spliced the separate moments together, creating one continuous image of twenty-four hours on a sixty-foot strip of Durotran film. Within the darkened gallery, a light box, ten by eighteen feet, is suspended from the ceiling and presents an eye level view of the scene, visible through a narrow strip in the light box. The long shot rotates slowly, at a nearly imperceptible speed, so that one rotation will take twenty-four hours.
