The Rhine (Latin: Rhenus [ˈr̥e̞ːnus], Romansh: Rein, German: Rhein [ʁaɪ̯n], French: Rhin, Italian: Reno, Dutch: Rijn, Alemannic German: Rhi(n) including Alsatian/Low Alemannic German, Ripuarian, Low Franconian: Rhing) is one of the major European rivers, which has its sources in Switzerland and flows in a mostly northerly direction through Germany and the Netherlands, emptying into the North Sea.
We will play with multichannel near-simultaneity, exploiting transmission latencies and temporal offsets, experiencing destructive and constructive interferences, — overlapping, amplification and extinction of waves in a global disconcert.
I expected that putting this tiny drop of water on my forehead would make my mind zoom in to the drop, turning my face into some sort of large and unrecognizable landscape. Instead, the drop caused a strange pulling sensation that slowly took over my head, and the longer it sat out of sight, the less sure I was of where it had spread and what it looked like.
Take a picture through your jar of water of someone or something living that means a lot to you. Thank the water for making life possible. Post your picture on waterbodies.org and tell us about the picture and its meaning for you.
This is a picture of my wife through the water jar. Water is an important metaphor for us, reminding us of the flow of creativity, friendship, and life.
Water, Salt, Sand, Sun, Moon, Mountains, People are the memories I carry from living the first twenty one years of my life in Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The feeling of being immersed in salted warm water is still embedded in my soul.

Searching for the right measure
According to the scientific researches 72% of human body is water.
My body weight is 56 kg. Capacity of the water that my body contains is 40.32 ℓ.
In this work I am offering the amount of water that I have in my body,
Indestructible = Eternity
The scientific law about indestructibility of substance says that substance cannot be destroyed, it can just change it’s form because of E = mc² for unrelativistic particles.
Experiment: By solving the 117g of salt in 200 ml of water the saturated solution is made. After the vaporization of the water the amount of salt remains the same.
Since we are also a substance = energy, we are indestructible too.
Observers were invited to do this experiment.
Are a set of twelve video installations, video and audio together form a haunting composition.
The sequence of images are landscape shots which I have slowed down and distorted,
which maintain the balance between the moving and still, frames that act as windows.
The audio captured in different places from the images but belonging to the same environment,
causes strangeness, the absence of a relationship with the visuals.
The audio frames the fiction, exaggerating the illusory, staging of the other.
