About The Artwork

“Tutto passa” ,an Italian saying that translates to “Everything passes” and is often used as the abbreviation “TPS” to designate its french translation “Tout passe”. This expression is universally used to describe a state of impermanence of a given situation, usually a bad one. For instance, Trump, lets hope “It will pass”.“Tutto passa” serves to express this feeling of life’s ever-changing nature that is ultimately always finite, and implicitly rejoice about it. On a cosmic scale, we know from quantum physics that the universe has a beginning marked by the “Big Bang”, and would eventually come to an end likely by an increasing universal entropy that would provoke what physicists call the “Heat Death” of the universe dooming the cosmos, and the end of all things we ever knew and will never know would occur from it. In Carl Sagan’s 1994 book “ A Pale Blue Dot” he meditated on the images of NASA’s Voyager 1 of our solar system and called the Earth — the only home we ever knew “A very small stage in a vast cosmic arena” and expressed how futile and inconsequential all the wars and events of human history were on this cosmic scale, which would eventually end like they never happened in the first place, making a point on how everything we know is fleeting and insignificant in a relative way.
