I began freediving, a sport in which one dives as deep as possible on single breath hold, as a way to approach the inaccessible space of the deep, to expand my understanding of the unobtainable.
This space (the deep) seemed to me to be representative of something that is totally unknown, its power existing in its inaccessibility, in its un-know-ability.
Through training/experiential data collection and using human physiology at depth as a framework, this thesis work book explores a single breath hold to the other side.
Work made in support of this exploration touches on darkness, depth, the edge, the void, and the forms, sounds, and shapes that embody these ideas.
