An endless day uses Google Ngram Viewer, a statistic tool used to evaluate and compare the recurrence of words in the books scanned by Google Books. Here, the intervention simply consists in the search of two words: “sun” and “horizon”. The searching parameters – historical period, corpus, etc. – keep their default values. The curves that result produce a minimal, but yet archetypal, landscape picture: an horizon, a mountain range – as much as a narrative, in which the only event is that the sun never sets. Playing with this temporal dimension, the artwork remains perpetually ongoing. Indeed, the amount of books scanned by Google increases constantly. So, a new printscreen is shot and printed for each new exhibition of the work.
