Rocking the Gold
Inspiration: I find it visually fascinating to peer past the reflective and refractive surface of water and seek to identify the objects resting beneath as they flicker, distort and sometimes briefly disappear altogether. If they are brought to the surface and allowed to dry, the items often appear lifeless only to regain their elusive beauty when submerged once again. The experience seems to serve as a metaphor for the very human, but unquenchable desire to search through time, both past and future.
