Tehching Hsieh

– performance artist who began a series of pieces that were 1 year in duration

– One Year Performance – 1980-1981

– Hsieh punched a time clock, every hour, on the hour, 24 hours a day, for an entire year. To help illustrate the process, he shaved his head before the piece began and let his hair grow freely for the duration. Every time he punched the clock, a move camera shot a single frame.
