Water is a vision to me.
Initially, I was working on the still state of the water, the capture of the rain, the moment water ripples and flows. I focused on the meditative perspective of seeing such a malleable material. Water is like a self-exploration of myself. It is about diving into the unknown. To run. To roar. To blast.
Water can flow, or it can crash.
