In 2005 Irina Danilova together with Hiram Levy have founded the Project 59 Seconds Video Festival, suggesting artists create works with 59 seconds length or playing upon the title in the content of their works. “Why 59? Why not?” – with these words organizers of this New York festival answer all questions. The tree videos presented at the Media Forum also come from the festival’s works.
