"I had hundred people lying down on the grass, and we shot it from up above, and we had twenty-five people in a line. I did it as a one-frame movie with black fade-in and fade-out. It was simply called 100 Minds, but I did it as a horizontal movie theater. I lined the people up in four rows on the floor with their eyes facing forward, and then I simply had one or two people in the audience say, “A hundred minds” as a title of the movie."
