My childhood memories of summer holidays on the Aegean seaside have formed a deep relationship with water in my psyche. As a child, playing in water gave me relaxation as well as pleasure. I found swimming to be an exciting way of exploring a foreign terrain, an access to a muted world away from the noise of the land. In this quietude and foreignness, I had peace. As I grew older, I came to relate the experience of being enveloped in water to what I imagine humans experience in the prenatal state, bringing out a sense of safety, serenity, and inner balance. Swimming became a way for me to feel what it is like to be free. Being in water to me is a naïve, magical, and sensual experience, reminding of youthful innocence.
