High Tide Information

High Tide has placed flat sheets of antique glass placed on an overhead projector, light passes through the glass to project a life-size image of a seascape. In front of the window a mirror is angled to reflect a shadow image of the model boat onto a frame, creating a picture of the view through the window.
The rainbow signifies hope and exists when there are two extreme types of weather, something I was experiencing when making this piece. I was also interested in the idea of the scene leaking into the room.
