Human life is fleeting. Yet why should it be perceived as anything less beautiful? For does life's fragility and temporal limitations not raise its beauty and worth? Transience explores our relationship with the inevitable fading nature of life. This unavoidable progression raises a number of conflicting emotions within us, lacing the beauty and enjoyment of life with a foretaste of mourning. Flowers are used within this film for they so eloquently embody the transient nature of life (bud-bloom-seed). Exemplifying the ever-constant cycle of all living organisms. The act of freezing this cycle reflects humanities feeble attempts of preservation. This notion of elongating life and preserving beauty is an ever-growing obsession in today's society.
