Artist's Description

This is a drawing i took from William Kentridge Stereoscope series/film. It was a project we had to do was redraw a famous local artist but upside down. So drew this with charcoal and chalk upside down!
I love the series which is about a man who feels overcrowded yet empty at the same time. He is unsure about his feelings.In this part, a room fills up with water but Kentirdge says its not that the room is filling up but that the town is leaking.

The title comes from a song by Owl City Its a beautiful song.

Opened my eyes last night and saw you in the low light
Walking down by the bay, on the shore,
staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore
I was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so cold
Like an introvert,
I drew my over shirt around my arms and began to shiver violently
Before you happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
Running into the dark underground
All the subways around create a great sound
To my motion fatigue: farewell
With your ear to a seashell
You can hear the waves in underwater caves
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room

Time together is just never quite enough
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time,only time
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time,all the time

Can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldn’t let me sign on?
All my islands have sunk in the deep,
so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
I feel as if I were home some nights when we count all the ship lights
I guess I’ll never know why sparrows love the snow
We’ll turn off all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow
So tell me darlaing do you wish we’d fall in love
All the time

Time together is just never quite enough
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time,only time
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time,all the time
Time together is just never quite enough)
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
So tell me darlaing do you wish we’d fall in love
All the time
