When placed on the water’s edge or surface, Water Shapes pieces drift apart and come back together into their original form, or reconfigure, creating new compositions. The shapes cannot be directed or controlled. Without being too didactic, I have in mind the thousands of refugees waiting on Greek islands, the small boats that make dangerous crossings, the extreme vulnerability of the passengers far from home, and the forced reconfigurations of their lives.

    The video is documentation of work in progress, not the final piece.
