The inert nature of the images gives rise to the whole phenomenon of past, present and future. However I want to capture these temporary moments when I myself along with everything, is in a state of transition. I want to capture the beauty that exists in each and every passing moment, which is further highlighted due to its inevitability of death. Therefore I want to devise a technique, which captures these instances momentarily and in a few days, or weeks the whole image would be transformed, reciprocating the harsh realities of life and how at the end of the journey all is forgotten leaving only a faint conscience as memory. I want my work to serves as a metaphor of how life is; constantly struggling, consistently in a flow, and continuously influx. Yet a certain trace or a mark of the past still exists and sustains within this flux of movements, expansions and flows.
