PRESS BUTTON ONCE TO PLAY FILM LOOP..."One Million Years is Three Seconds" is an experimental interactive installation by J. Shimon & J. Lindemann about time, place, creation, progress, and lifelong accumulations. It focuses on four older Wisconsin men (a poet/painter, a self-taught sculptor, a modern dancer, and a farmer) who avoided the homogeneity of American consumer culture by carving out their own worlds in various corners of the state. Film loops, videos, framed photographs printed in antiquarian processes, found educational films and text book pages were installed in the Wriston Art Center Galleries at Lawrence University, Appleton, Wisconsin, January 18-March 9, 2008. A book of the same title accompanied the installation and is available through Lulu.com. This video documents the installation.
