floating // commissioned work

I recently had the chance to go check out this new sensation called "floating". Seems simple, and the concept is. You crawl into a tank filled with 800 pounds of epsom salt, lay down, and float - preferably in the dark with no music. It's a meditative experience for you to recollect your thoughts and find relaxation and refreshment.

Nalu Float, Rochester, Minnesota's only floating center, was generous enough to have me come in and try floating out, and write a piece on my experience. I don't need to get too personal, but although I was a little claustrophobic at first, I had a nostalgic (odd right?), restful time inside the floating tank. It was an interesting experience to be pulled away from the chaos of everyday routine, and be alone with your thoughts while floating in that trippy, silky water.

Here's a video explaining a little more about floating (this video isn't from Nalu, but similar concept):

Based on my experience while floating, the piece I wrote is below.

You can check out Nalu Float's website here and try it out for yourself.
