"Still Life" (2001) and "A Little Death" (2002) are two video artworks by Sam Taylor-Wood. They consist of time-lapse video footage and reference the tradition of still-life painting. The camera records "the rotting and putrefaction of, in the first instance, an arrangement of fruit in a bowl, and in the second, a freshly hung hare, both table settings commonly depicted in traditional still life painting." (White Cube).
