In concentrating on this set of problems, often wrongly seen as 'minimalist', Iimura went much, much further than any other film artist in exploring a kind of art-science. This concern with the experience of time, its measured passage and the analogy between time and space, has been the main recurring theme at the centre of his work.

"24 frames per second". Examination of time and space, of light and darkness, of visuals and sounds. The film alternates between one-second passages during which the viewer sees one of a series of fractions and [with] one-second segments of black and clear leader. As the film progress, the fractions grow from 1/24 to 24/24. "1/24," for example, is followed by one second of film in which one frame is clear and 23 are black or [then] one is black, 23 clear.
"Timed 1, 2, 3" Visually, each section of the film is composed of 10-second spans of clear and dark leader, arranged in a progressive fashion so that at first there is more and more light and less darkness, then vice versa. During "Timed 1" a sound "bip" scratched directly onto the soundtrack is audible each second; in "Timed 2" the sounds are audible every 10 seconds; and in "Timed 3" we hear them every 100 seconds, or at the halfway point and at the end.
"One frame duration". Concerns the duration or non-duration of one frame, as the title indicates, the minimum unit of film in space (dark and light) with sound (or silent) and their various combinations.
