DAYS, I See What I Saw and What I Will See explores the notion of producing a continuous representation of space and a discontinuous representation of time – at the same time. The film was shot over 11 days from 24th of February to 6th of March 2011 in the China Labour Camp in Sajaa, Sharjah.
The artist built 100 metres of tracks to make travelling shots. He installed the tracks through the course of the day, and then filmed 100 metres in approximately 4 minutes. The next day, he dismantled the tracks, re-assembled them, moved 100 metres ahead, and filmed again. He did this for 11 consecutive days shooting both during the day and at night. The incremental editing of the daily recordings produced two singular plan séquences representing 1100 metres of space and 41 minutes of time.
