I am a habitual self-interlocutor. One evening night while taking photographs at the american museum of natural history, I had a near-hallucinatory vision. My internal question-and-answer session leading up to this vision went something like this : “Suppose you shoot a whole movie in a single frame?” The answer : “You get a shining screen”. Immediately I began experimenting in order to realize this vision. One afternoon I walked into a cheap cinema is the east village with  large format camera. As soon as the movie started, I fixed the shutter at a wide-open aperture. When the movie finished two hours later, I clicked the shutter closed. that evening I developed the film, and my vision exploded before my eyes.
