Early Research

(1) Water v.s. Shape

This is not an artwork, but more like a casual snapshot. I think the image is very attractive and it beautifully illustrate the flexibility of water. What is interesting about it is how a random splash of water can be interpreted as a dancing girl.

(2) Underwater (water as an environment)

These artworks are in a monumental underwater contemporary museum of art called MUSA founded in 2009. This project emphasizes the interaction between art and environmental science and form part of a complex reef structure for marine life to colonize and inhabit whilst increasing biomass on a grand scale.

It provides a good example of using water to create a unique spatial artwork. We would consider simulate an underwater environment by using certain flash lights.

(3) Water v.s. Ice

These are artworks from 2006 World Ice Art Championships. These ice sculptures have beautiful colors from the flashlights, and the cross sections of these sculptures affect the directions and paths of the lights and therefore give the audience a feeling different from liquid water.

(4)Water v.s. Vapor

Meridian (Gold) is exhibited this summer in LongIsland city. It was an illuminated plume of water vapor whose color shifts between magenta and pale cyan. The color of the vapor corresponded in real-time to the global sentiment for gold, reflected in the price fluctuation of the commodity. Gold is a peculiar material that derives its value from the social perception of its qualities and collective "moods" toward geopolitical and economic events. The framing structure for Meridian (Gold) was a seating zone that references communal rejuvenation spas and here becomes a site to reflect on the fleeting materiality of contemporary life.

We can use humidifier to produce water vapor we need though the installation may not look aesthetically appealing. This is also an example of an installation which combines water and light.
