on this very last week of christian marclay’s the clock at the power plant gallery, a film for philosophers, film makers, artist

it made me start to re think of time- which immanuel kant had some interesting ideas,
His first argument states that our notions of time, such as simultaneity and succession are “mind-contributed”, meaning that our minds develop these ideas to explain the relationship of different events, because they are presupposed in our perception of simultaneous or successive events in time.

” Time is a necessary representation that grounds all intuitions. In regard to appearances
in general one cannot remove time, though one can very well take the appearances
away from time. Time is therefore given a priori. In it alone is all actuality of
appearances possible. The latter could all disappear, but time itself, as the universal
condition of their possibility, cannot be removed. ”

– Kant
