Drifting in Time is a photo series of five that makes the passage of time tangible and raises questions about the future; do we take over nature? or are we eventually taken over ourselves? A young girl, eyes closed, her face affected in various stages by algae, sludge, aquatic animals and brood. The photos evoke associations with Ophelia, the unfortunate beloved from Hamlet. Maddened with love, she drowns in a stream. Just like humanity, she surrenders to the always-propelling current. It is a metaphor for the future climate disaster that awaits us.
