white rise and blue fall, 2013
Inspired by Pablo Neruda's poem “On the Blue Shore of Silence”, white rise and blue fall explores notions of falling into a memory or dream. "The fact is that until I fall asleep, in some magnetic way I move in the university of the waves...nevertheless, the pulse that rose and fell in its abyss, the cracking of the blue cold, the gradual wearing away of the star, the soft unfolding of a wave" - Pablo Neruda
