"They always say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself."   Andy Warhol

This series of short films studies how time has been interpreted by experimental film artists from 1963 to the present. Featuring works by Andy Warhol, Bas Jan Ader, Jørgen Leth, Christian Marclay, Joe Diebes, Annika Larsson, Reynold Reynolds, and Carlo Zanni, the series takes the conceptual films of Andy Warhol as a point of departure, investigating the fundamental ways in which the camera can either document or manipulate real time. Warhol utilizes both of these cinematic devices in Kiss when time appears to freeze. The trajectory of contemporary artists presented engages the many ways in which the camera can communicate passage of time, whether through simply recording an event or creating a hyper-real world with new technologies.

Series of short films:

1) Andy Warhol Kiss, four minute excerpts, 16 minutes

2) Bas Jan Ader, "Broken Fall (Organic)", 1971, 1 minute, 44 seconds

3) Jørgen Leth, "The Perfect Human", 1967, 13 minutes

4) Christian Marclay, "Telephones", 1995, 7 minutes, 30 seconds
