Based on my poem of the same name, The Horizon-Man ( L’Homme-Horizon) personifies the imaginary horizon line, forever present as an illusion between the ocean and the sky, between reality and the imaginary. Like with a mirage in the desert or with a “fata morgana” on the high sea, a misunderstanding of the phenomenon can be disastrous or even fatal. There is a sense of security and comfort in the horizon’s presence, perhaps it even arouses a longing for adventure, but like in a wild dream or a secret fantasy, it remains elusive and its boundaries can never be attained; at least, with the limitations of our manifested human form.
