“Mono no aware”, ‘the pathos of things’, also translates as “an empathy toward things”, or “a sensitivity �to ephemera”. A term for the awareness of impermanence, or the transience of things. A meditation �on mortality and life’s transience, ephemerality heightens the appreciation of beauty and sensitivity to �their passing. In investigating the passing of time, the boundaries between memory and hallucination �become blurred; between fiction and reality. The movement of time transforms into an eternal present.
