Background: What is impermanent in this world? Quite simply, the answer is everything. Whether we are ready or not, one day, we will have to part from what we have in one way or another. Even so, impermanence has its value and place in this world.

Research & analysis<br />LIFE CYCLE<br />A life cycle is a period involving all different generations of a species succeeding each other through means of reproduction, whether through asexual reproduction or sexual reproduction (a period from one generation of organisms to the same identical). For example, a complex life cycle of Fasciola hepatica includes three different multicellular generations:<br />1) "adult" hermaphroditic; 2) sporocyst;<br />3) redia.<br />In regard to changes of ploidy, there are 3 types of cycles:<br />a. haplontic life cycle<br />b. diplontic life cycle<br />c. diplobiontic life cycle (also referred to as diplohaplontic, haplodiplontic, or dibiontic life cycle)<br />
METAPHOR: The face of a human being, nature (flower, surface of the earth)
SUBJECT MATTER: If the giving can last forever; what can you give? It does not need to cost a fortune. You can even give a timeless positive memory. The getting dies with you. The giving lives on. Getting is temporary, giving can last forever.
OBJECTIVE: The series of sculpture is to show to user the beauty of impermanence, the life cycle of "impermanence" things, the nature of life and it symbolizes many things. It's a transition from from perfect to zero and the life expectancy.</li></li></ul><li>Contextual studies<br /><ul><li>MOTIVATION:</li></ul> As I was looking at my own face, i realize, our face, human face didn't last pretty long, and it somehow makes me think about imperfection, temporary. "Impermanence" also always been associated with nature.<br /><ul><li>IDEALIZATION / CONCEPT:</li></ul> Create a series of sculpture that represent the installation.<br />
FINAL SYNOPSIS<br /><ul><li>THE ARTIST: ADLINA ARIFFIN
Title: Impermanent</li></ul>Imagine you are going to die in one minute’s time.<br />This is your last experience, reading this, wearing what you have on, thinking, feeling and seeing what you are thinking, feeling and seeing right now.<br />If you let this fact sink in — that life is short, and we all die — it can actually act as a powerful motivating force to help maintain focus and priorities. Everything changes and is impermanent, so are we fully present and making the most of this fleeting moment? Are we fully aware of what we are doing? Appreciating impermanence clarifies priorities, and it helps us identify any frenetic, shallow and ineffective activities we’re being distracted by. We see clearly the things that exhaust us and distract us from experiencing the blessing and opportunity of each particular day.<br />The metaphor in this project is the face of a human being, nature (flower, surface of the earth)<br />A series of 5-10 human face sculpture as big as an a4 paper that represent the significance of the void, and an appreciation of wabi-sabi (a complex concept that, too simply put, celebrates the transcendence in natural cycles of death and decay).<br />
