When conceptualizing Tide, I was inspired by the Persian poet Attar who, in his masterpiece Mantiq al-Tayr (The Conference of the Birds), introduced the seven steps of mysticism: the valleys of Quest, Love, Understanding, Independence and Detachment, Unity, Astonishment and Bewilderment, and Deprivation and Death. The search for Truth and the process of self-realization is explained metaphorically in this book. This installation consists of one wooden door buried in the sand. Inside the door, there is a mirror which reflects the sea, as well as the image of the audience who are standing in front of it.
