As Time Goes By

Agata Bartos
To mija czas
Poland 2016 / 6’

A short experimental film in which the artist focuses on three “portraits” of time. The first part features a snail, accompanied by a short exchange of voiced-over opinions. Then we see a detail of a tabletop from which items slowly disappear. Finally, we see a landscape with a factory in the background that we see as the video speeds up. In the background, we hear classical music, industrial sounds, and passages from Shakespeare.
