Parallel Journeys is a psychological exploration of the conscious and unconscious mind; above and below the surface. At the same time, it dives in and out of emotional experience such as joy, sorrow, loss, anger, hope and peace.

 

Layered in concept, the viewer is pulled under again and again in shifting timelines as memory blends with sensual perceptions. Water, specifically the ocean, is portrayed as a source for our struggles and pleasures, reflecting ourselves and our projections back at us in hopes that we might gain new insight and new understanding.

 

Similar to the small percentage of our conscious minds, only 5% of the oceans have been explored and the rest remains unknown. Unlocking the secrets to what currently is out of focus, will prove essential to thriving in the future.
