The Longest Minute: “Time Line on the High Line”

image

How long is a minute?

This was the question posed by artist David Lamelas during his performance “Time Line on the High Line.” The interactive piece took place in three different locations throughout the park on July 22, 23, and 24. Park visitors were invited to stand along a white strip of tape, in no particular order, and pass along the time. The performance began with an announcement of the time to the first participant in line. That person “holds” the time for an estimated one minute, at which point they then announce the time out loud and “pass” it to the next person. Visitors were encouraged to join the line at any point as well as use their native language to announce the time, adding their own subjective sense of time to the performance’s duration, both temporally and physically.

So, how long is a minute? Sixty seconds.
