Hourly I, February – April, 1991:
For three months, I filmed a portrait of myself every hour, including my surroundings in the picture. The hours when I was sleeping are shown by the use of black film. I do not consider this film as a self portrait. I simply had to film myself as representing any person in time and space, since no one else could be around all the time.

Hourly II, December 1991- April 1992:
In this film, I extended the process of "Every Hour I", using the same technique. Some shots were taken using "conventional" speed, and there are sequences that, to various degrees, challenge received notions of what is "in-focus".

Hourly III, One Week in August 2012:
Same technique, twenty years later, almost twice as old, one week in August.
