Permanently Transient is concerned with processes of change, using water as a metaphor for how life is never fixed. Water is appropriate in conveying this as it transforms between different states of matter (solid, liquid, gas) in a never-ending cycle; it is in a state of flux. Transformation appears on multiple levels in Permanently Transient; in the fluid and temporal nature of the subject and the process of transforming light to shadow via the chemistry on the paper's emulsion. Also, the physical image transforms as some photographic prints were not fixed entirely when processing, this creates a tension between permanence and impermanence.
