The series focuses on the mysterious and aesthetic qualities of water and how the human subject portrays the innermost conscious when separated from the surroundings that might otherwise define them. The lack of gravity and horizons creates a scene unlike anything in the natural world, hinting at an ethereal world.
The installation is located on the garage facade on the east side of Walnut between 12th and 13th Streets. It is a temporary installation that will be in place through October 2014.
