Chronos

Chronos

Archival Pigment Print. Various sizes. 

 

Time is running outside me. Time is running inside me. One day, my time will be over. Everything is transient. 
“Chronos” is a project about facing one’s own mortality. It is something that we fear the most. For this project, I collected symbols and metaphors regarding the transience of life. At first glance, these images seem very incoherent, but as they are put together, they tell a story about fragility and the vulnerability of human beings. One day I was standing on the shore, watching the waves break against the rocks. I asked myself if water was able to feel pain? Strange thoughts come into my head when I look at the sea. My life is longer than the life of a wave, but it is much shorter than that of rocks.
