Video installation / Loop
It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere according to a popular saying. And what can be said about Happy Hour can also be said about sunrises and sunsets. Using CCTV, the video installation 24h Sunrise/Sunset displays a real-time sunset and sunrise happening somewhere in the world.
“I wanted to show that unsecured CCTV cameras can also show something beautiful.” (Dries Depoorter)
