Project: Moments

How long is a moment ? How does a moment feel ?
The Moments project investigates the perceptual length of ‘a moment’.

With scientific estimates of what a perceptual ‘moment’ is often hovering between three and four seconds but opinions across the worlds of art, perception, philosophy and cognition often disagreeing widely the project investigates just how long a ‘moment’ might be. The ‘moments’ project records instances of noticing, moments of attention, and records them. Collating video since early 2014 the project has so far recorded close to a thousand separate video clips.
