The project is about metamorphosis and finding joy. It's been or will be a 16 - month journey of swimming,
writing, dancing, sound and video editing, but all combined with reflection. Lots of changes: symbolized by reclaiming the
name my parents gave me, Julie. What we call ourselves and each other has much to do with our perceptions and who we are.
I feel, one month before the presentation that my life is no longer a series of linear chunks, but more of a circle that will
cycle continuously. Being a whole person takes more effort than letting oneself be divided by inner and outer judgments, but
I am honored to share the beauty of being who I am with others. My hope is that others will enjoy my work and take on the
challenge for themselves.
Wu Wei translates from Chinese as literally 'no action'. This isn't what it means though as no action
while swimming leads to drowning. Rather it speaks to the way one can best get to the other side of the pool without getting
water in one's nose, crashing into everyone else's lane and without panicking about realizing one's feet don't touch the bottom.
