This translation evolved from an experience I had while visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California. They have a wave machine there that causes a wave to break over a large plastic or glass half dome while you are standing within the half dome. The sound and motion of the wave breaking around you is awe inspiring. The sound and movement from a beautiful melody on the violin creates a similar feeling within me. I thought I would blend the two experiences into one for my translation of the photograph.
