For 36 day at 08:00 I film out of my window. I stand by the camera and take notes of what happens. The length of the movie is decided by how long it takes for me to write a page. All the films are framed the same way. Small things are changing -- different weather, a bird that flies by, the wind in the tree. The buildings stand still and stay the same. I read my notes out loud. They all follow the films. A shift in time takes place since it is faster to read the notes than to write them.The voice is louder when the notes begin. Every day starts with me proclaiming the date, the time and how many degrees it is outside. By hearing this you get a sense of what images belongs to what notes. The notes of what is happening are read with the same lower voice. You can't separate which words are coming from which days. You only hear fragments from the stories. The phrases and words from different stories mix together and create new meanings.
