Innocence Becomes Sharks

This installation aims to capture the transitional space between the sea and the shore. It acts as a dynamic boundary, reflecting the ever-changing processes of the modern world, characterized by constant flux and influenced by disruptive natural events that significantly impact our daily lives. Interestingly, we ourselves contribute to these changes. Historically, the coastline has attracted people with its mystique and enchanting appeal, but it has now transformed into a complex realm intertwined with political, sociological, and biological intricacies.

As discussions about inevitable apocalyptic scenarios intensify with rising sea levels, a central question emerges: How does one navigate through this uncertainty and endure? What does it mean to appreciate beauty in the face of such a dramatic reality? In my frequent dreams of standing on the shore, the receding water transforms into a distant yet rapidly approaching tsunami. Just before waking, the entire scene dissolves, and the breaking wave reveals the mysterious secrets concealed beneath the surface.

The coastal flora and fauna are captivating in their diverse array of forms and textures. For a brief moment, you are transported to another world, momentarily forgetting your roots and the world you've left behind. In that solitary moment, tranquility envelops you.
