Moving Images: Surge & Surface

March 19, 2015

In the summer of 2014, I experimented with an underwater video camera for the first time. This is also the first time I've worked with video since high school. I still thoroughly enjoy making still images, but it was interesting to more or less make a still image where time and movement are added elements.

I've always thought that swimming and diving beneath the surface was as close as I could ever come to flying. Beneath the waves I can study the movement of life and be caught up in the movement of the sea. The surface is where I must return, it's a joy to refill my lungs and marvel at the beauty of where water meets sky. Two worlds they are and I belong in one, yet I visit the other as frequently as I can.
