“Everything is impermanent and comes to an end. Every moment that comes into being is a moment of destruction” – Dzigar Kongtrul

into a landscape, unrest is inspired by the idea of how impermanent our surrounding and environments are from the very subtle to the more pronounced. There are cycles to how things form and transform according to what is present in the space. Our awareness guides what we deem to be background and foreground and this is continually changing as we experience one moment to the next. The piece plays with this shifting awareness and the expectation for things to continue as they were.
