A momentary obstruction is created – twice a day, at midday and at another point before sunset. An actor closes the window blinds one by one, from left to right. Then the actor walks to the other end of the room and opens the blinds one by one, from left to right.
‘Gnomon’ takes place between two spaces. The duration of ‘Gnomon’ is dependant on the space it takes place in and how many window blinds there are. It can take place with just one window blind. ‘Gnomon’ can take place more than twice a day, but it must take place on the hour during the hours of daylight beginning at midday.
