One: 1 year ME"
Once a day I take a picture of myself. I do it each day.
It's my face in a close-up. It's a face a day, there's a face to each
day, each of my days captures one of my faces. Each day is a frame of
a face, a frame of my face.
A second of a film holds 24 frames, that is 24 of my days.
A full-length film lasts 90 minutes, which equals 5400 seconds. Each second
holds 24 days: the total comes up to 129 600 days within the full-length
It's as simple as that: I will need 355 years to shoot a full-length film
where each of my days will be a single frame in the sequence.
An average life span of 70 years can be captured in a 17.7 minute duration
of a film.
A year of my life, when taped, will last 15.2 seconds. It's 15.2
seconds of my faces: 15.2 seconds of ME, taking a picture a day, each
day throughout the year = 1 year ME
Two: 1 year MOUNTAIN"
is located at the foot of the Vitosha mountain and anytime I look through
the window I cannot believe how different the mountain looks, how different
it is, in fact. It reminds me of Fujiama.
A year of my life captured through the views to the VITOSHA mountain.
A LIFE WITH A VIEW.
Each day I take a picture of the mountain. Same time, same place.
A second of a film holds 24 frames. A year of my life will last 15.2 seconds.
15.2 seconds of views to the VITOSHA MOUNTAIN; 1 year Vitosha
Three: Stay with Me"
I voice my feelings, disguised as thoughts, and I record them. Day after
day I keep recording them in chronological order and cutting them off
by date. This is the soundtrack to my dates with the MOUNTAIN.

The two looped films, "1 year MOUNTAIN" & "1 year ME"
are screened on two wide screens facing each other. Parallel to the screenings
runs the soundtrack. Two sequences of 365 pictures each, each picture
size 24/30 cm are exhibited to complement the exposition. Each picture
copies the images recorded on the film frames (both films). The full film
is presented in photos: there's a picture for each frame.
of 365 pictures requires 26.28 square meters of exhibit space. Two opposite
walls 3.60 meters high and 8.50~9.00 meters long will be enough to accommodate
