“In these pieces, I was trying to explore contemplation of the night sea as transition into dream. The idea was based on some video installations I made last year in which I distorted the image with crystals and prisms to achieve a greater degree of abstraction, which made it more unreal. My intention is to convey an eerie, dreamlike sensation, between wakefulness and sleep, where the image of the distant sea rocking us merges in with that of the dream until it makes us fall asleep."
