The Deep. Balance..Peace and chaos..darkness and fear..light and exuberance. Color dims into shadow and light illuminates the reality.
To me creative play is about using your imagination to view the world from a unique perspective, to spark ideas and absorb into another reality. A place to be free from the confines of the everyday norm. The dark deep ocean under the moonlight, inhabited by creatures unknown. The flip side is the sunrise over the sea, revealing the glee of dolphins, free to play and explore the vast possibilities of their domain. Two moments captured in the same space, depending on your viewpoint.
