Australians have a strong connection to the sea. Much time is spent walking along the beach picking up pieces of organic material strewn along the sand by the waves. These objects come from deep beneath the ocean, a place that is often hidden from us, a place that holds a certain mystery. Glow evokes these floating forms spewed up from the deep. There is a reference to the cycles of life, to the rhythmic movement of ocean waves and to the sea's abundance and bounty.
