Spring 2022 Theme: Transience
Thank you to all the artists and writers who submitted your work!
Transience: “The state or fact of lasting only for a short time.” Change defines the human experience, producing transience in almost every area of our lives. We perceive transience in the things that once were, but are no longer, like the friends of a bygone era. We perceive it in things that cannot last, like an 8-month-old’s fascination with peek-a-boo as they begin to develop object permanence. We perceive it in things that may be, and which we know we must cherish as time and change are continually flowing.
Transience is a theme in an incredible diversity of artwork, music, film, and literature. From Monet’s snapshots of fleeting dawn and dusk light in his “Haystacks” series to the hit film Coco’s consideration of the transitory nature of our time among the living. Heraclites’s proverb “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man” captures the essence of this concept. How does your art interact with, utilize, or depict transience?
