Water Bowls: moon ~ drop ~ sound ~ oil

Water Bowls: moon ~ drop ~ sound ~ oil

Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2009
Hong Kong

Four water bowls reflect different aspects of water related to the collective, global human condition. Some of the most common metaphorical associations of water -- such as the reflection of the moon, a drop of water, the sound of water, and oil and water -- are revisited through the use of some of the latest scientific observations. Moon and Sound are locally interactive and Drop and Oil are interactive both locally and remotely, emphasizing the global connectivity of water / human systems, beyond borders.
