Playing on the understanding of time in relation to movement, when there is no movement within the frame the speed of the footage is drastically diminished without this being perceptible. The footage was shot from my kitchen window in Mindelo that looked onto a street that served as a shortcut between one of the cities notorious periphery neighbourhoods and the city centre.
