Pool Experience

This painting/combine is expressing the artist's experience of hearing again at a young age. While swimming underwater he could hear the sounds of water and when he came out of the water he heard the sounds around him. He heard the kids yelling, water splashing, the sound of the diving board. As he ran home to tell his family, the sensation of sound weakened...and again disappeared. He has never experienced the window of the "hearing world" again.
