Hiroshi Sugimoto brilliantly noted: ‘The water is
a collective psyche. In its blankness, it offers a screen onto which
we can project out reflections on our origins.’
Revisiting the seascapes of this city was a profound
meditation and time well spent on thoughts about floaters, migrants, boat
people – people I can relate to. I discovered within the borders of the beach
that people are looking out to the sea to call their loved ones’ home. As if
the sea was the temporary place to call home.
The work consists of sixty-nine pieces of small worlds
that I found in my seascapes. I can see more than just the waves. I see new
worlds and cities that my mind latently creates. I imagine mountains, skies,
birds and faces - in each and every one of them a different story.
The water really is a collective psyche.
