A boat trip evolves unexpectedly to an inward motion. In neuroscience, illusions are considered substantial in revealing how the neural “machinery” works. On the boat, when things fail to correspond to reality, as perceived by the senses, illusions of vision and proprioception provide a sneak peek under the surface. Beyond expectations, a strong undercurrent lies beneath. The iconoclastic portrayal of the personal and the profound and the clash of still imagery to flow constitute elements of the vessel’s strange poetic universe. Catharsis is achieved through the admission of the paradox.
