Waterworks

Installation with 9 Super-8 film loops, 1996

 


Nine Super-8 film loops are projected side by side onto a long screen, giving the sense of a dynamic and continuous change, of flux and recurrences. 

The earliest Greek philosophers of Miletus had attempted to understand the spectacle of transformation and change; recognising that things did not come from nothing or pass away into nothing they were searching for that thing which could take so many shapes. The oldest of the philosophers, Thales, thought that it was water.
