Most works in this block fall under the umbrella of time and its documentation. Each of the authors finds own method for expressing this problem: working with family archive, own and others’ memories, trying to snatch material features of time, comparing old and new media, researching intermediary states between different time intervals, changes in space and possible narratives.

The building circular—A cage, glazed—a glass lantern about the Size of Ranelagh—The prisoners in their cells, occupying the circumference—The officers in the centre.

One station in the inspection part affording the most perfect view of every cell.
— Jeremy Bentham, 1798

Shot entirely in 16mm black and white film using single frame photography, 165708 employs in-camera techniques and chemical manipulation of processed film to produce an eidetic study of temporal elasticity. Techniques include flicker, time-lapse, light painting, stop motion, tinting, and toning.

Сan film and video coexist in the same film? Here, 16 mm film and VHS video tapes need each other in order to exist.
Thanks to the transparent clear leader of 16 mm acetate film, we can visualize in movement the materiality of the analog video support, glued on top of the film, serving as skeleton and structure of the vhs tapes intervened. A film? A video? Both and none at the same time...

"The Thing is Lost" is an abstract, audio-visual experience, inspired from monotonous, still overwhelming and omnipresent existence of the internal dialogue. This film is an emotional journey through expressions, confusions, colors and affects. A journey in hope to "find" or to "be found", yet "the Thing is Lost"...

„Firstly” is a part of Jacek Jędrzejczak’s project named „TEN” and as such it confronts the subject of human being in a relation to time. Duration becomes an expression of the slump of continuum, stoppage, and as a result – a change, an inertness. In a tension of slowdown Jacek Jędrzejczak finds the space for reflection, constituted on noticing a broader perspective and deeper dimensions.
