Water and salt: NaCl IMPRESSIONS NaCl Watercolors sodium chloride in water sodium ions ... positive and negative ions dissociate chloride. The electroneutrality is broken. The ions are released ... saturated sodium chloride solutions can give crystals surprising that the shape and size ... With this salt, using aqueous solutions of appropriate dyes, Rita Nunes bridge proposes an imagined how to create images, diffusional impressions imposed by sodium chloride, which take us to a new world (almost unreal).
Available fresh water supplies continue to dwindle as water demand rises from expanding world population, urbanization and industrial development. To meet global water needs, new membrane technologies are sought that allow for cost effective recycling of municipal, industrial, and commercial wastewaters. Membranes with molecular-scale fractionation capability are of further interest for low-cost separations in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
"Coming from a material science background, my current work deals primarily with issues regarding science, iconography, and identity. My first series, Altered States, is inspired by nano science and quantum mechanics, and deals with deconstructing iconographic images and enabling the transformation of materials to new states: bringing airiness into solid, dense or heavy objects, and creating solid bodies out of fluids and light.
Cosmoscapes are alternative contemporary landscapes. These works are an internalization of our biosphere expressed through drawing, painting, digital imaging, and video. The goal is to construct a cosmology for the viewer. These works serve as consciousness portals for the viewer to access a parallel layer of reality. These are poetic unnameable places that reveal the conflict of consciousness in the space of the non-verbal. Recognizable moments emerge in these works and are encoded with an invented symbology.
"El agua que llega. El agua usada. El agua que podemos llegar a tener."
¿El agua que brota del manantial tiene la misma calidad que la que circula en estas tuberías?
El agua de estas tuberías, la que bebemos ¿es la misma agua que sale del edificio?
“The water that comes. The used water. The water that we come to have.”
Has the water from the fountainhead the same quality as the water in these pipes?
The water from the pipes, the drinking one, is the same that goes outside the building?
