The left panel shows an image of a young woman in the process of giving birth. the right panel shows an image of an old woman in the process of dying. Both are documents of actual events. The central panel shows an image of a clothed man underwater moving through alternate stages of turbulence and undulating stillness, held in fragile suspension before an indistinct, shadowy space, suspended between birth and death.
