‘36 shots in 36 days, each a 24 hour exposure with an open shutter’, read the details of Michael Michlmayr’s contribution. This maximum exposure to light in March of 2016 was a challenge to the photochemical process – on the one hand to get any image of the world out there at all, given the long exposure times and, on the other, to capture the sun itself even if that was mainly in the form of burn marks. ‘The extreme over-exposure led to the auto-development of the negative material so that the film only had to be fixed and washed in water.’ The slanted ‘cut’ that the sun left on the film is the ‘form of the course of the sun, its changing position and intensity during a clear day’ (M.M.). The overlapping of these light trails provide a reference point for the ‘movement of the landscape’ during those 36 days and thus a visualisation of the progression of time and space.
