Minute/Year: Four Years

A presentation of an archive

Minute/Year: Four Years is a visual and sonic archive of Minute/Year, an ongoing process-based installation by the artist duo Kovács/O’Doherty.

Minute/Year: Four Years will present one thousand, four hundred and twenty-seven spectrogram images — one for every day since January 1st, 2016. These images form a visual and sonic archive of all the recordings created by the Minute/Year installation to date, and will be presented as three parallel video projections (one each for 2016, 2017, and 2018), alongside a colossal, wall-sized grid-collage of all images from the current year.

Minute/Year is a sound-based artwork, which began almost four years ago on January 1st, 2016. The work has generated compelling sounds and images, for one minute each day, ever since, in an accumulating, serial process. Since the beginning of 2019, the work has been running at grüntaler9. As a result, attendees at Minute/Year: Four Years will also have an opportunity to experience the recording-playback process of Minute/Year, as it happens each evening.

Minute/Year: Four Years will comprise audio, video, and a wall-sized grid-collage, presenting all sounds and images generated by Minute/Year over the last four years. It will be a unique opportunity to experience the scope of this ambitious durational work, and the first time that the complete record of this work has been shown in a single space.
