An exercise on subjectivity as an aspect of empirical measurement

A response to the question of what one minute is or could be.
We often measure our lives in terms of time, but what using a measure for time itself?

We are always measuring time, but can we feel it, feel it's weight? A quirky record of artist friends who set out to weigh one minute in grains of rice. Filmed in Farmsum, Friesland, The Netherlands. Music by Craig Denham, Aotearoa | New Zealand. Video edited in New Zealand.
