About this submission

The Silent Water is my exploration of the boundary between imagination and reality. I got the inspiration from a documentary, in which some people believe that their lost loved ones would communicate with them. This belief conveys a common hope: the world after death is not completely dark, and we will finally reunion with our loved ones again. Real-life could be tedious and pathetic, but storytellers can give meaning to life and explain things from another perspective. Sometimes I think those fantasy elements are closest to our true feeling, emotion, and fear.
