concept: On the day of the Equinox, the centre of the sun spends approximately the same time above and below the horizon for all points on the earth’s surface: 12 hours.

For the project Equinox to Equinox 2020, on Friday March 20th, I performed an action lasting from 12 seconds to 12 minutes, from sunrise to sunset.

Thus, in total, I developed twelve actions and a thirteenth action to close this transition day. All the actions were carried out within the perimeter of my current residence, in Perpignan in the south of France and in confinement, due to covid19.

Action times:

06:50; 07:50; 08:50; 09:50; 10:50; 11:50; 12:50; 13:50; 14:50; 15:50; 16:50; 17:50; 18:50.
