Tree* Movie – Jackson Mac Low

Tree* Movie (1961):
Select a tree*. Set up and focus a movie camera so that the tree* fills most of the picture. Turn on the camera and leave it on without moving it for any number of hours. If the camera is about to run out of film, substitute a camera with fresh film. The two cameras may be alternated in this way any number of times. Sound recording equipment may be turned on simultaneously with movie cameras. Beginning at any point in the film, any length of it may be projected at a showing.

*) For the word "tree", one may substitute "mountain" , "sea", "flower", "lake", etc.
