In The Well Statment
In the Well is a personal study examining the childhood memory and confabulation. The experience of looking into the deep well and dropping pebbles was strongly intimidating as a child. The dark world inside of the well stoked the flames of imagination. It is still vivid, but strangely, the more I try to remember the details about it, the more I sense the fragility of memory. There are low and high tides in between what I had imagined and what I actually had seen. I transform the wooded landscape and the gesture of my body into a metaphor of doubts and uncertainty.
