Black and white photography that reflects on the dissolution of boundaries and a delineation of space and time.
When adrift, we exist in a state
of aimlessness, nothingness, and randomness. We relinquish control. We
surrender. We float. We are allowing a natural flow outside of ourselves to
carry us where it will. We are living without imposing order or structure on our
world and ourselves. We are living without plans and goals, without road maps,
destinations, or even a sense of direction. We are not in control.
When adrift, we are freed from
demands, expectations, rules, and obligations. We are free from having-to. Our
boundaries dissolve—boundaries that delineate space and time and that separate
us from others.
Some of us are naturally adrift,
aspiring to nothing in particular, allowing the current to carry us, embracing
the unknown. Others still are thrust into the unknown when the shock of change
leaves us drifting between the old and the new but yet to emerge.
When adrift, we may finally find
peace and rest in nothingness. But this nothingness may also elicit fear and
anguish if we resist relinquishing control. However, once the structures,
boundaries, and demands that held our lives together are dissolved we may
finally experience our true selves.
