A bit can be atomic, it is the smallest unit of data in a computer. It can be a unit of information or it can be a description of a piece, like a bit of chocolate or a bit of a walk... but this is then relating to time, like saying “the film went on for a bit too long”. I could bite my lip but then if it was in the past I would say “I bit my lip”.
A group of 8 bits come together to make 1 byte, and a group of 36 photographs can come together to make 1 exposed roll of 35mm film.

This is a book of bits.

With unwanted film off-cuts being caught between being packaged or binned at a photographic lab, this photo album resurges potential images, left over material that has been rescued bit by bit.
