the broken minute
by Arnold Reinthaler
In Arnold Reinthaler’s Video “the broken minute” (since 2009) the temporally defined work process that leads to a project becomes the actual artistic project in which the producing subject and the produced object are equally integrated. The video is an excerpt from a not yet completed project that consists of 144 five-minute books and a video. On the screen a clock face can be seen that is photographed 43,200 times over a period of 12 hours, printed out, flicked through by the artist and filmed again in the process. The artist’s hand replaces the clock hand and flicks at one second intervals lagging behind the here and now of his own art production. The end of the project can ultimately only be decided by the artist himself.
