Back to the Future: De-sequencing Time with Video Assistant Referee Technology

Abstract

As digital technologies permeate every aspect of our life, they are essentially redefining the material foundations of life itself - time and space. In this short paper, we investigate how digital technology influences different aspects of time and related experiences. The research was inspired by a specific incident occurred in the sports setting involving the use of Video Assistance Referee (VAR) technology in a live football match, which served as a revelatory case. Our preliminary analysis reveals that the use of VAR technology exerts different effects on clock time, event time, and experiential time. The different effects lead to decoupling of time, which then triggers time dissonance, where assumptions and expectations around temporality clash and collapse. Our research sheds light on the interplay of digitalization and time on a different dimension of temporality (the relationship between past, present and future) and discusses its societal implications.
