The maelstrom is a natural disaster. A whirlpool in the ocean, which pulls every object, human or creature of the sea, down to the bottom. It maintains its existence through constant movement; swirling and relentlessly moving water, spiraling down into the sea.The title Maelstrom symbolizes the overwhelming feeling of being out of control; as the spiraling water is so powerful, there is no use in resisting its movement. Only in surrendering; going down with the elements and everything else that gets caught in its movement. Hoping for the best, while the water pushes and pulls relentlessly. The creation of this environment is my attempt of surrendering to the inevitable movements around me. And hence partly, letting go of my necessity of control and trusting my artistic intuition. It is an attempt to break to more freedom.
