This ongoing project seeks to use under water as a metaphor for dreaming or the subconscious. My partners appear to be falling asleep, mid-rest with the bubbles of ideas swirling around, or lost in their psyche. What ideas or dreams will they fixate on or remember on waking?

Mike grew up in Pennsylvania and in 2005 moved to Arizona where he’s rarely cold and doesn’t have to shovel snow. He graduated from Bucknell University with a major in English and a minor in Chemistry and still wonders what to do with them. ? He currently works as a nuclear medicine technologist mainly so he has someone to talk to. This lets him photograph on the side without having to live on ramen and sleep on friends’ couches. The rest of his time is devoted to various cats. They don’t like ramen, but they do like couches. ?
