ephemeral nature

ephemeral nature

I find interesting how people tend to feel ephemeral things beautiful, romantic and valuable perhaps. I was curious to find out why we are feeling that way within my practice.
I used a strainer, a rubber ball, dustsheets and thin edible films as materials. There is water on top of this piece, and it gradually leaks and ruins the thin edible films. This sculpture is inspired by jellyfish because it is ephemeral and romantic sea animal. In fact, it does’ t have function to think, and jellyfish’ s body melts in ocean after it died. I acknowledge that idea of permanent becomes a drag in order to represent ephemerality. Therefore, I attempted to create temporary piece by using material that disappears throughout the time.
