  • “To wait for the inevitable: Narratives from the sea” is a three-part story about a catastrophe at sea. Through sentences from books, historical shipwreck sites and a model of a delusive light that only leads to disaster, I explore questions of existence, and what happens to the human mind when we yearn in vain. The piece explores the self-destructiveness that makes us harm others and ourselves, but also the beauty of never giving up.
