I asked the performers in the videos to keep their eyes open as long as possible. Resultingly, they held their eyes open for different time lengths. After that, I edited a one minute ticking clock sound separately and inserted each altered sound into each video. For example, if a performer opens his or her eyes for 1 minute and 15 seconds, the one minute clock sound will be stretched and inserted into the video of the performer. Basically, when a sound becomes longer, its pitch becomes lower. In contrast, when a sound becomes shorter, its pitch becomes higher. Therefore, the videos of the performers which have different time lengths, create different clock sounds that vary in pitch. Ultimately, I looped each video individually.
