Water as Art
With Water as Art, I am pursuing my investigation of movement and phases of water.
An attempt to freeze in time and register a unique formation of melting glaciers
through aerial photography.
The resulting photographs present a painterly quality as if nature was painting with
water currents without a beginning or an end. Because water tends to take on a
spherical form, the river braids formations twist and turn as a circulatory system.
‘Water is the element of selfless contrast, it passively exists for others…water’s
existence is thus an existing-for-others… It is its fate to be something not yet
specialized and therefore it soon came to be called “the mother of all that is special”’
