"Ouroboros (Contrails)" is a series of linked photographs, creating a horizontal line composed of connecting contrails, which are clouds streaks produced by aircrafts. The continuous line threads together different skies, pointing toward a unison direction, carrying on each other's trajectory, and subsequently creating a loop that repeats itself. This work examines a shared connection between familiar atmospheres from different locations and times. With thoughts of heading East (per physical mapping orientation), tracing my way back home to Vietnam, the initial intention of defined points of departure and destination became questions of uncertainty and cyclical nature of our pursuits.
