Oblivion is what I think of in the dark richest seas. The ocean floor is incredibly mysterious. It holds a world alien to the one above the surface and one we are far too comfortable with. The idea of falling further and further down to this idea of oblivion both relaxed me but also held some elements of fear. I wanted to create something that symbolises the falling effect of my mind and body fighting that away from the dark oblivion.
