Polaroid, Watercolor Paper,
Things form the water body
This project explores the mystery of photographic irreproducibility, centered around water. Through a series of lifted Polaroid photographs and corresponding water samples extracted from various sources, it presents a unique connection between photography and nature. Each photograph bears distinct characteristics influenced by the particles present in the water. This also echoes the discussion in the article "Photography and Liquid Intelligence" about the controlled nature of liquids in photography. The experiments in the project further investigate how different water sources affect Polaroid imagery. Additionally, it delves into the role of water in climate change and compares the methods of water collection by artists, scientists, and tourists, highlighting their varying understandings and uses of water. The project also addresses the phenomenon of tourism, prompting a reevaluation of our relationship with the wonders of nature and the importance of preserving their original context.
