This was the video element in a larger installation, "Post Tot Naufragia Portum", that was my final thesis piece from grad school. The video was edited to be an endless loop of mirrored waves, emphasizing the perpetual motion of the ocean. All together, the installation was a memorial to my mother, who passed away from cancer. The video still holds power standing on it's own. The mirrored image creates the effect of a Rorschach blot test; wings, faces, skulls being some of the apparitions often seen. These images open up for contemplation of mortality and spirituality.
