Regina Silveira's Mil e um dias (1001 Days) (2007) in the Film Sector of Art Basel Miami Beach 2013.
Mil e um dias (1001 Days) is a combination of live action and animation with a soundtrack that alternates rotating images of night and day. The images slowly expand and contract, in a movement resembling that of a camera shutter, as the landscapes mix and regenerate, recalling the tradition of Brazilian concrete poetry. The continuous succession of interloping days and nights alludes to the infinity of time, evolving horizons, and interchangeable hemispheres.
Organized in association with David Gryn, Director of London's Artprojx, Film sector presents works across two venues: inside the Miami Beach Convention Center, and in the outdoor setting of SoundScape Park where works are shown on the 7,000-square-foot outdoor projection wall of the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center. Selections include works by some of today’s most exciting artists from Latin America, the United States, Europe, Asia, and beyond.
