THE YEAR OF WHEN is a living book. It may be enjoyed by hundreds of museum-goers simultaneously viewing the animated mosaic on a large display screen, where “tiles” change positions randomly.
Fully searchable by Date, Keyword, and Table of Contents, THE YEAR OF WHEN also invites visitors to explore the work with their fingers, using stand-alone kiosks programmed with touch-screen technology.

Ethan Christy is a filmmaker and photographer from the Hudson Valley and currently based in Brooklyn, NY. He enjoys traveling, meeting new people, meditating, watching flicks, film photography, and generally being silly. In helping to create The Year Of When, he found it liberating to work so spontaneously and collaboratively, a practical experience of the Maya Angelou quote: "You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” Ethan has written several feature screenplays and is currently developing a film for production in 2023.
