Desire for eternity
This is one of the biggest motives to create so-called art
Why do we take a picture?
Everything in this world is flowing and nothing is at standstill
Time is the same. It's passing fast, like an arrow
Time is accumulation of "moment" and it is "moment" that always flows
We can't capture and hold "moment"
But, by taking a picture, we feel like we could successfully freeze time and capture "moment"
And we feel like we could make this short-lived momentary "beauty" forever
Beauty......, in other words,
Desire for stopping time
Desire for holding & feeling ecstasy forever
Many works in photography, films, music, paintings, writings, sculptures etc contain this lust deep inside
Life is ephemeral
That's why we can't stop seeking something eternal
