Time is commonly thought of as a line (theoretically, a line of
infinite length) where the present moment is located as a constantly moving point. Everything that is ahead of the current moment is the future, and everything that is behind it is the past. However, just as a line can be described as a sequence of points in various positions, any moving or changing object can also be thought of as a sequence of non-moving "snapshots" of itself. In the project Life As Life. The Discreteness of Time (vintage photo enlarger, video), the artists seem to be observing the serene flow of life, while at the same time breaking the "arrow of time" by "manifesting" the uniqueness of each separate event. Life consists of repetitions, giving the illusion of different events combined into a single "stream".
