Water surrounds us,
It defines us,
Its isolation is an isolation in its lifetime.
The sea becomes its own myth, generating madness,
pushing beyond the limits of the mind,
In the clearing of mans struggle.
Cyclical over time,
higher than any border.
A bond that connects us all.
Projection installation in situ
