35 Minute Smile

Duration: 35 min 41 s
Digital video, monitor

A man, the artist himself, walks into a picture, concentrates and starts smiling. 35 Minute Smile looks like a passport photograph or a school portrait filmed with video. The quick moment of the smile, the taking of the picture, has been prolonged to last for 35 minutes. It lasts until the man cannot smile anymore and he walks out of the picture.
