In the "video I", I'm trying to film the sea horizon on the same framework of the series "Seascapes", artwork of Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto (1948-). The view was recorded in black and white mode of a compact digital camera.
Behind me, Daniel was filming the preview of my camera's LCD screen and trying to keep aligned the horizon line of the my screen and the horizon line of the sea landscape.
The duration of both videos were defined by the time we were able to support the cameras without any aid of the arms.
