Video synkronisert med manipulert digital klokke, lyd. "15:05, 2007-2012, a multimedia installation based on the commemorative ritual marking the exact moment of Josip Broz Tito’s death—May 4, 1980 at 15:05 (CET). The ritual’s choreography required that the entire population “freeze” in a standing position for one minute on the sound of ubiquitous air raid sirens. In this largest-coordinated performance in human history, the whole country of some twenty million people took part by responding accordingly to a single-tonal cue intonated by the country’s complete arsenal of air raid sirens. During their research visits to the six national broadcasting archives, Bull.Miletic discovered the scattered documentary reportages that witness the ritual’s iterations along the eight consecutive years (1980-1988). In the news footage, this extraordinary “social sculpture” becomes increasingly unreal as the “flying” cameras cover the event. In the installation, the individual video sequences are randomly re-assembled in real time by a computer program, forming an endless seamless video feed in situ." Samarbeidspartner: Dragan Miletic. Ferdigstilt: 20.12.2012. Verket er plassert på Interkulturelt Museum i Oslo, Norge. "The exhibition and public lecture series are supported by generous grants from Norwegian Cultural Council, Fond for Lyd og Bilde, Oslo kommune ved kulturetaten, Billedkunstnernes Vederlagsfond, and Academy of Fine Arts, Oslo National Academy of the Arts"
