"Lifetime”: The Hectic Present
This video clip illustrates the theme of the time through movement which is our natural time reference.
Combining tension and liberation, as well as invitation to dance, the emotion displayed here forms a revolt mixed with a sense of release in the face of the universal fatality of time passing tirelessly.
"Lifetime" features to play with time: Stopping it, slowing it, accelerating it, through drone movements, timelapse pictures, drawing animations and dance choreography.
The ephemeral and cyclical nature of time is reflected in the content of the song's lyrics, repeated like a mantra:
"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”.
In perpetual evolution, this video also reflects our subjective perception of the time, in order to deliver the message that all that remains is now… So enjoy it.
« To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. »
- Oscar Wilde -
This song « Lifetime » is spirited and « Electro Unreasonable ».
