Twenty-four UC Berkeley Students from a variety of departments — from Art Practice and Art History to Molecular and Cell Biology — worked with the artist, the curator, and the museum's Information Systems Manager, Rick Rinehart, to realize 24h00. Every hour of one entire day, the students took a photogographic portrait according to their own criteria for subject, composition, setting, and lighting, asking the subjects to describe in one word their state of mind at that precise moment. All of the images are represented on the screen by a grid of numbers from 1 to 24, each number corresponding to a photograph in the order it was taken.
