Ghostly light projections captured within delicate glass bubbles
Describing a strange, subconscious world where our memories and daydreams lie.
Imagined, re-imagined, distorted.
Telling tales of our selves and our lives; a different tale each time.
This world is an underwater place - dark, unknown and exquisite
A place where past and present collide.
