“Somebody has told me it’s summer solstice”
“Yes, I’m investigating whether the sun is really standing still”
“I need you to stand still for just one minute. Film the landscape to frame the sun’s position in the sky against the horizon. The card you pick will reveal the hour you are entrusted to observe.”
“With a digital camera. Prompt action is called for, you have until midnight to upload your film. I will have 3 hours from UK midnight/ 9 pm BR to edit the films into a sequence to be projected on Monday 21st at 17:17 here in Rio”
