The perception of the changing of things feels fragmentary in light of the impossibility of permanently being aware of it.

Transformations can only be perceived as a part of the past. As if we could only realize that we have arrived in the "here", but not know how. Past vs Present. As if there were transitions culminating in a change, insurmountable transitions that cannot be conceived or felt in the present. These are fluid moments of various duration that first gain relevance when looked back upon.
