"What is possible in an hour?" through experiments to show how we perceive time.
ONE HOUR project tries to answer the question "What is possible in an hour?" through experiments and activities that last exactly one hour, using a variety of media, tools and found objects. Individually and collectively, they can suggest many things; such as determination, ability, commitment or efficiency but mainly how we perceive time.
It started as my thesis 2 years ago and I still continue to do projects that take exactly 1 hour, until I reach 1000 hours. My dream is to publish those 1000 projects in 4 books, each including 250 projects.
one-hour.net is an on-going documentation where you can see all the projects I have done so far and also my progress.
Why do I need money for this project?
I would like to print the 1st book with 250 projects, a limited edition of 1000 copies. Before printing I need to do 150 more projects that means 150 hours of work just to make them, plus I need to photograph all of it and put it in the book.
So, I will use the money towards getting materials, my work, designing the book(prob around 150 pages) and printing 1000 copies.
