24 hours

14/15 June 2023

For 24 hours, I drove an improvised route,
with a 10-minute break every hour,
eventually arriving back at the starting point.
Drawing of the GPS track on a satellite photo.The drive started in Dordrecht (NL) on June 14, 2023 at 10 pm
and ended on June 15, 2023 at 10 pm.
The total distance was 892 kilometres.

24 hours is related to the works:
L’espace vingt-quatre heures (2020) and
Nycthemeron (2021).

During a train journey,
I sat at a window.
I voiced what I noticed outside,
and recorded it with a sound recorder.
On the return journey, I sat in the opposite seat,
with headphones on
and as I looked outside,
I listened to the audio file in reverse.

From the trees overhanging the path came the sound of a nightingale.
I recorded the sound with my phone and then played it loudly.
The nightingale responded and sang a duet with its own captured song.

In a landscape of slates and cork oaks I took a walk.

During the walk
I kept a piece of cork in my left hand,
and a piece of slate in the right hand.

We both hold the rope. It connects our attention.
We see each other, we see the water .
The rope in our hands follows the current,
it churns and turns, it pulls.
It leads and guides the movements of our walk downstream.

I found a random composition of logs under a sawn-off tree
and accurately mirrored the arrangement.
