“One Minute, One Image … ” is based on Micol Hebron’s column in X-TRA, a quarterly journal published to promote and provoke critical discourse about contemporary visual art in Los Angeles, and is a recreation of a project produced by Belgian director Agnès Varda. Varda invited various people in and outside the art world to respond to photographic images for one minute. She presented the results on French television in 1983.
