It’s hard to tell what’s water, air, or solid ground in this dreamlike image. At the center, a long-limbed woman, tucked in a perfect jacknife, appears to be falling through water towards a grassy field. Tire tracks cut through the waving grass, creating a long horizon. A roof of foamy water, shot through with light, flickers above the woman’s outstretched arms and streaming hair. Above that edge of foam, you can just make out what appear to be the shadowy shapes of hills — perhaps the land the diver left before she fell asleep.
