Series: Water to air
The series “Water to air” investigates water as a space by placing a beam of light and a camera underneath its surface. By entering underwater, we embrace not only a space, which is alien to our life and foreign to our survival, but also a space, which, due to its physical properties, changes the way we perceive it. The phenomenon, which in physics is called “Total Internal Reflection”, makes the water-to-air surface look like a perfectly silvered mirror. As a result, we look at strangely embodied beings, which resemble uncanny creatures floating in an internal solitude of seemingly endless space.
