The work is about the difficulty of maintaining balance. The subject is buffeted by the action of the water around them and they are in constant state of adaptation: adjusting their posture, gait, their sense of gravity as well as decorum. A sense of defiance to the destabilizing force and struggle and resiliance is evident. While this toil takes place for the duration of the video, there is an indication that the world above the surface is different and some unidentified red object is being held aloft.
