THE REALITY OF TIME
The Film begins with the capturing of a moment in time. After its manifestation the film splits itself in three layers: Past (Orange, later shown in the shape of the Shell-Collector), Present (White, later shown as a bird) and the Future (Blue, The Ray). At this point “time” corresponds as the all of us well known sequential representation (the pendular).
We follow the three layers till the moment when all of them are connected in one picture. Now they exist parallel. Past, Present and Future are not longer come after each other – now they exist next to each other.
According to Bergson this is the pure meaning of the reality of time. For realizing these enhanced perception (Intuition) you have to feel the time, experience the time. The black square tries to do this and stands for the symbolic representation of the whole, the “la durée”.
The encompassing time in the end counts another three seconds: Three Seconds of Present. The maximum duration our brain can consider as “timeless”.
