In times of devastation, the natural tendency is to become overwhelmed with feelings of desperation and sorrow. When events are out of our control, how an individual reacts to a catastrophe is often the only thing we have the power to change. This project seeks to visually juxtapose a tragic situation and the individual’s ability to choose how they react to it. The dancing couples introduce a feeling of hopefulness and optimism amidst the rising water levels caused by an undefined disaster.
