I'd been working on the Bubble Series for several years and wanted to add another layer to the series. During exhibitions for the Bubble Series, I would talk with people about the photographs and then leave them alone to peruse the show.
I would then listen to people talk about the photographs and hear what people thought the bubbles "really were" as they often did not believe that what they were seeing were bubbles.
Eventually, I started to deliberately create a scene in which the viewer truly can not determine what they are seeing. Instead, I want people to hypothesize what are, in fact, these unknown objects.
Oftentimes, when I am working underwater, I will see objects that have no place being in our waters and it's heartbreaking knowing what we are doing to this precious resource.
