THE DRIFTING CONSCIOUSNESS

When it comes to seaweed, I can't say no.
Seaweed used to be one of my favourite food. Until one day I have to be really careful about the intake of iodine and I can barely eat at all. I thought it was just a change in my eating habit. However, I realise there’s something more.
During my stay in Iceland, I did some seaweed hunting when there’s a low tide. Plenty of seaweeds are lying on the beach. Surprised by the diverse species of seaweed in Iceland, I started a botanic study of them and meanwhile they became my magical symbol. Generated graphics and sound are usually my fictional language, but this time I try to add poetry for documenting my feelings towards Iceland and all my self-reflections.
Now, I consider seaweed as a tunnel that somehow connects me with my inner self and also a representative of the deepest desire in my subconsciousness. Just like the holdfast of a seaweed that attach itself to the substrate, I want to dig out the core base of the inner me through these fascinating organisms.
The Drifting Consciousness is something that deeply controls my decision making in every single day, yet I seldom pay attention to them.​​​​​​​

IMAGINING HOW THE SEAWEEDS FLOATING FREELY UNDER THE SEA
JUST LIKE NEURONS IN OUR BRAIN
TRANSMITTING INFORMATION AND CONTROLLING OUR ACTIONS
MEMORIES CAME BACK AGAIN AND THEY WERE JUST SO CLOSE TO ME
I LET MYSELF DRIFT INTO SELF-TALKS AND TRY TO RECORD THOSE TINY LEVITATING SENSES
BY TRANSLATING MY EMOTION AND SENSATION INTO SOUNDS AND ANIMATED VISUALS
I RECONNECT WITH ME IN A KIND OF SUBTLE WAY
HOW SEAWEEDIOUS!
