Lifetime of Wishing (100 Birthdays) is a compilation of 100 people blowing out their birthday candles, ages 1-100. Through this successive viewing and compression of time, viewers can consider their own mortality. The video consists of appropriated footage transferred to super8 film which is viewed as a film loop.
