I am drawn to, and inspired by, the Japanese concept of wabi sabi, which celebrates transience and imperfection and embraces an idea of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. It seeks beauty in the imperfections that appear as all things, in a state of constant flux, arise from nothing and devolve back to nothing. Within this unending movement nature carves out random tracks for us to contemplate and it is these arbitrary flaws and imperfections that remind us that nothing lasts forever and that impermanence is the fundamental truth of life. I believe that it is only the appreciation of the unstoppable passage of time that can lend a deeper edge to our appreciation of life.
