Time Passes

Nelson Henricks

1998, 06:30 minutes, colour/B&W, English


Using a Super 8 camera, Henricks employed time-lapse photography to document the interior and exterior of his apartment. Inspired by the work of Virginia Woolf, this video uses writing as a metaphor to speak on notions of temporality and impermanence.
