IF BY WATER is a silent video installation, running on a loop, that will be projected into the stairwell at Kühlhaus. The piece is entrancing and unnerving, beautiful but flickering. There is no all-encompassing viewpoint of the piece; there is no correct perspective. In order to view the piece at all, one must necessarily be inside it, and thus implicated in it.
The piece combines thousands of original still photographs of water with found archival photographs related to water. It abstractly references motion, surveillance, human agency, and time.
