Having lived near the Pacific Ocean for thirty years, Carol Saindon is inspired by the observation and contemplation of the forces that move the seas: “From what is known of the observable universe, the massive turbulence taking place in galaxies and supernovas is witnessed in part on Earth in the push and pull of tides and strong weather patterns affecting the oceans.” In addition to a long career as an artist, Saindon has lectured at Scripps College and Chapman University.

Turbulence #18 is a photomontage made of 112 separate images of the ocean arranged in a grid structure. The effect suggests the shifting, surging cosmic power that influences the seas.
