"Falling (into the unknown)" expresses a mental state of fear that one may experience and continually struggle with. I’ve been interested in exploring the concepts of stillness and chaos and how they might interact in specific contexts. There is a lot that can happen in this kind of emotional state. I find that stillness and chaos are greatly present in fear. They overlap and exchange through different kinds of tension and are present within each other’s form, maybe just for a brief moment or could be sustained for a longer period of time.
