WATER QUILT

The grid serves as a video quilt for different views of water. Basically what we are seeing is all of the non-water ‘elements’ and the diverse effects embraced by the water. The complexities of circumstance in such a profound element are almost infinite and yet water at its core remains connected by its simple essence. In the video the juxtaposition of moving and still images create a tension and flow of design and space that allow us, in time, to follow the changing composition and those complexities. By not having an audio component, silence serves as a way to access the visual element with no distraction. Interestingly enough while realizing the video we found the different qualities of movement in the water created a sound through the eyes.
