In a fleeting Moment 2024

As an artist born in India, I find myself deeply drawn to the changes occurring in our immediate surroundings —urbanization, land encroachment, displacement, dislocation, and the poignant loss of a land's identity. The dynamic landscape of Seattle, marked by its prolific real estate market, exposes me to the heartbreaking spectacle of houses being dismantled and replaced by new constructions. The demolition process, though simultaneously heart-wrenching and visually alluring, crushes century-long memories into an unpredictable aesthetic composition, offering a narrative that transcends mere physical destruction. In the brief chaos that ensues, there is a profound evocation of nostalgia. Yet, in the blink of an eye, the site transforms, giving way to something new. 

Similarly, the beauty of flowers with their vibrant colors and delicate petals is intensified by their fleeting existence. This impermanence, both melancholic and beautiful, becomes a poignant reminder of the relentless passage of time and the inevitability of change.

“In a fleeting moment” highlights a raw juxtaposition, bringing together remnants of urban ruins and short- lived blossoms. Both being inherently fragile,

embodying a simultaneous state of vulnerability and anticipation of a new beginning.
