"Fled foam underneath us, and round us, a wandering and milky smoke"
Fled foam underneath us, and round us, a wandering and milky smoke is a series of images that illustrates the succumbing of the overwhelming feeling of depression. Juxtaposing the 36 images in a line lets the viewer sees the subtle differences in light and movement. The images have an eerie sense to them. The black and white print gives a sense of nostalgia. Questions are brought up like, who is this person? Is it an actual human or is it something supernatural. The overall series and instillation is homage to the poem “The Wanderings of Oisin” by William Butler Yeats. The poem is sectioned into three chapters. Oisin is telling a story of his adventures of being in love, fighting battles, rising to immortality and falling back to mortality. I see this series of work as a depiction of my battle with depression, anxiety, vulnerability and fear.
