Transience

Mono no aware is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence. The closest English word would be transient - an understanding of the pathos or transience of things.

Transience is a digital exploration into mono no aware and the gentle passing of moments in time. The Japanese believe there is more beauty in something as fleeting as a cherry blossom, than that of a flower in bloom all year. That a fading sound is more intriguing than one clearly heard.

The fragments of moving images in Transience examines these ephemeral and short lived moments of Buddhist existence.

Each movement provides a new moment in time that cannot be repeated, or preserved and therein the beauty lies.
