Dive Dark Dream Slow is rooted in the mystery and delight of the ‘found’ image and the ‘snapshot’ aesthetic, but pushes beneath the nostalgic surface of these pictures, re-casting them as luminous transmissions of anticipation, fear, and desire. Like an album of pop songs about a girl (or a civilization) hovering on the verge of transformation, the book cycles through overlapping themes and counter-themes—moon/ocean; violence/tenderness; innocence/experience; masks/nakedness—that sparkle with psychic longing and apocalyptic comedy.
