    What exactly is it? Is it like people standing still... Or is it inanimate objects?

    Or something else?

    Fruit in a bowl, of course! :mrgreen:

    There should be a corollary to the contest: best answer to "what is a still life in our postmodern world."

    Please don't confuse me more than I am already.


    So pretty much everything I can see that doesn't move, is still life?

    Would a rock be still life... Or because it technically isn't alive, and *technically* never has been - would it not be?


    like what I mean is, does the word "life" have an impact on the meaning here?

    Does it have to be living to be considered still life?

    My definition...
    A single moment captured that tells multiple stories.

    When it comes to the contest, just use your imagination. We keep the themes vague like that so we can see what people come up with.
