It is by no means the case that Dasein ‘is’ actual in a point of time, and that, apart from this, it is ‘surrounded’ by the non-actuality of its birth and death…Dasein is the ‘between’.

~Martin Heidegger, Being and Time

Art, at its core, is arguably the communication of some facet or moment of human experience–rather like a snapshot taken by a passing photographer of Dasein (literal translation “being there”), or the essence of existence.
