I have this idea to experiment with water, and movement for quite some time. Previously, I had made a short video while floating in a swimming pool. It was a magical experience to move my body, to breathe in water, and drink pool water, feel the slash. I felt more alive than any other time while I was in the water. Interestingly, there is another experience made me feel very alive. That was the time I started to go to the gym to do yoga. Then I realized that when I concentrate on breathing, trying to feel my muscle moving, I feel very good.
What is this project? It’s a short film, or I would call it a piece of video art. What is it about? It is about morning – morning monologues – anxiety – movement – monologues while doing movements – water – water makes everything alive – past life were a mermaid or fish? Silliness – repetition – hesitation – ocean waves – breathing hardly and deeply.
