5. Abstraction

From our perspective, abstraction and distortion is a powerful tool in the process of artistic creation, for they create more possibilities for interpretation. Compared with hand made abstraction, for instance abstract expressionism paintings, using water for abstraction is uncontrollable and unpredictable, therefore more experiments are required and the outcome are sometimes astonishing or maybe frustrating. 

Our performance includes the abstraction of the universe (at the end of our video), which resembles Vincent Van Gogh's "The Starry night". The idea behind this part of performance comes from my favorite science fiction, "The Three Body Problem", in which our galaxy is reduced to two-dimension through the attack from extraterrestrial civilizations. The author depicted the process of the attack as "Drawing a piece of "The Starry Night"".
