the picture in motion (the nude descending stairs)

the piece is a two minutes long and continual sequence of record of female body without a single cut. the whole material consists of 3000 frames (digital material consists of 25 frames per second ). the author numbered each frame from 1 to 3000 and afterwards he changed their position accidentally according to random order. every frame has a different place, but the random order doesn't eliminate the option that some of the frames acctually stay in their original position. an audio track of human voice counting seconds cut in the same way belongs to the visual material.
