This work was inspired by a curious synchronicity. At night, I often listen to music to help me sleep, and for several months I had heard a soft song animated by the stillness of a woman's beautiful voice playing on an internet radio station that had truly inspired me. One night I awoke to this song at 4am, with the memory of a dream fresh in my mind: I was sailing in a boat on the ocean, past an island of hypnotically-singing women who were somehow animating and constructing me with their song. Clearly the radio song had entwined itself into my dream, but when a few days later I learned that the music I had heard was called 'Sirens Of The Sea', the synchronicity of an Odyssean voyage past an island of singing women struck me. Thus this image was born.
