Breathing at the Bottom of the Sea is about curiosity and upheaval. The images depict everyday events that point to larger struggles and incongruities. The pictures of people, objects, and animals floating in space, of suspended leaves and loose puzzle pieces, embody this fragmented experience. Crooked frames and disrupted, decaying surfaces point to a collective scattered existence. An unseen force has acted upon each entity and interrupted its natural state.
