As much as I love depth, I know that is wasn't the depths that we were made for. We were made to experience the sun on our skin, to admire the depths from the safety of the shore. This has to be where we land. We can not get caught up in the endlessness of our feelings of emptiness, which can be fronted when we continuously look under the surface.
OCEANO POP-UP BOOK | by Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud; London: Tate Publishing, 2013 | Under the Ocean follows the voyage of Oceano, a red sailing boat, from port to a tropical lagoon, through temperate seas, the great white Arctic and an oceanic storm. Each pop-up page plays on the idea of the sea surface as a border to be crossed, showing the two worlds ‘above’ and ‘below’ the water.
