From One Sea explores the sensations behind memory through the compilation and collection of images of the sea in and around the Caribbean region. By building an archive of images that overlap and carry a moment into the future, this body of work focuses on the sea as a site of connection, one that blurs the boundaries of time and place, building a larger narrative around intimacy and belonging.
While individually, the images span many years and multiple places, when installed together, the alignment of horizons offers ways to reimagine the limitations of nationality. Confronted by a seemingly endless expanse, unrestricted by physical delineations, the opportunity arises to amplify moments that extend beyond the self.
This work creates a journey, one that builds a relationship with the viewer guiding them along its horizon, traversing a multitude of seas.
