LOST IN A GLASS OF WATER (2013)
(cleaning the eye while walking)
First part of a series “roving with a glass of water”.
The irony of the title mirrors the elusiveness of losing oneself in a handful of drops or in a glass that can contain an entire sea, leaving us with the question of how we perceive ourself and what surrounds us. I was interested in filtering the act of taking images with a gesture that was also an invitation toward others.
Water became a magnifying lens, an instrument to clean the eye, a compass and an offering, it contained both the possibility of drowning and floating while the rhythm of the falling drop underlined the necessary following step of the journey. If my eyes could see through the water they might learn to follow its vagabond nature, its capacity of constant transformation from the single drop on the bird's wing to the vapor density of fog.
