About the Picture

The sea and the sky are interchangeable. When the sea dries up where do all the fish go? Jellyfish are umbrellas. They are also ooze, one of the many forms most distantly removed from our own. After the sea dries up, there is no rain; our faces slapped by the stinging tentacles. Empty jugs and hopeless thirst. A world inverted is still capable of sustaining an ideal, even if its food has started cart-wheeling in the ether. There is a fear faced when the world changes and we have to change our goals and dreams with it.
