Submerged underwater, figures are caught, suspended in a threshold state held within a fragile, transitory temporality sustained only by the breath. In this place, detached from the everyday, the senses shift. Inhabiting this space necessitates both a physical and mental re-alignment. Here the breath, an otherwise reflexive function, becomes heightened. The interruption of this silent yet rhythmical exchange is a reminder of the subtle fragility of life.
