LIVING WATER

INTERACTIVE + MAKEY MAKEY + VIDEO ART

Meditations on embodiments of water. This project is a stream of conscious thought train connecting my body’s experiences with water. Approximately 57% - 60% of the human body is comprised of water. My body is a body of water, a walking puddle with my own ecosystem and story. Images in this piece include my hair flowing underwater, bubbles rolling upward through the water, and jellyfish with stingers drifting though the water These represent some of my body’s experiences with forms of water and as water, The pleasure and pain of it. The viewer interacts with the piece by drinking a glass of water to trigger videos that layer over each other with each sip. This is achieved through a basic circuit and a Makey Makey. The video encourages the viewer to consume water and meditate on the body as a body of water.

"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."
