About this Portfolio:
In Aarhus Denmark, the Vikingeklubben winter swimming group at Jomsborg requires that participants lock their phones outside the boundaries of boarded docks. When one enters the water, they leave their electronics behind. This transition is an opportunity to enter a different reflective state, assisted by the waterscape. How does the Danish tradition of swimming in all seasons offer reflexivity around our health and dependance to our digital devices. How does water help us to think deeply?

Water is conduit for light and reflection. It can be opaque or transparent. Water can also be translucent, a passage between the shades of two polar communication states. Within the hue of green, how many tints and temperatures can be identified? How do the textures of stones underfoot conjure associations? How does a proximity to water and light influence thinking?
