Canada 2008, 30 min, 35mm, Dir: Adrian Blackwell

Filmed in Toronto’s Regent Park from sunrise to sunset on October fourth 2008, Night Equals Day was shot at one frame per second with a 35mm film camera mounted on a motorized tripod head, rotating one tenth of a degree every second, or one full rotation each hour, capturing twelve daylight panoramas from 7:00am until 7:00pm. The installation is governed by a simple mathematical logic of shutter and pan speeds and the symmetrical relationship between the time of filming and the time of projection. It is intended to raise questions about the temporality of urban renewal and the equality between successive forms of the city’s fabric. The film rotates at the intersection of Sackville and Oak Streets, at the boundary between the neighbourhood built in the 1950s and the construction site of the new buildings which are replacing it.
