Reflection – a rhythm of emergence and decay. The dominant motif of the video is water – a life-giving and destructive force. The disembodied faces on the video are in a state of ambiguity and transition, oscillating to the rhythm of the water’s flow.

The final image of the piece conflates the paradoxical themes of life and death – a man appears lifeless under the waves. The waves of the water obscure the viewer from seeing what is really happening under those waters. We are left asking ourselves about the present times we are living in when we are confronted with daily social, political, and economical issues, not only in New York City, where I chose to live, but universally.
