B O D I E S  O F  W A T E R

This series explores the boundaries and the interconnection between we and nature, through water. Based on my own experience and observation of being in contact with the ocean  - particularly, the physical sensation of floating, the emotional and symbolic bonding through community for whom the sea plays a significant identity role, evoking the enjoyment of water; and of simply feeling water. It is an exploration into the sensory experiences of the skin, the senses and the associated emotions: the physical zest of its softness and texture, the warmth and cold of its currents in constant movement, and the gentle rhythm of its flow.
