Oceans, lakes, rivers, and ponds. On different scales they are repositories - resonating collectors of soliloquies, of dreams and memories, of desires to begin or to end a journey in the sea within. Bodies of water form a luminous boundary between the human and the non-human, between different scales of time, and of being.
