As our ‘Shapes of Water’ exhibition is sadly postponed for now, so I’ve decided to make miniature versions of it in book form. A pocket exhibition!
I repurposed test A3 risograph prints and folded them down into A5 book formats. I then digitally rescaled my original water molecule designs, recoloured them and printed giclee copies on recyled paper which I attached to the books. I also finished the pages with grahite pencil drawings, as I did on the walls of gallery space itself.
Each book features the 8 Scottish river patterns that are in the exhibition: River Tay, River Dee, River Forth, River Spey, River Esk, River Clyde and River Tweed.
I have a limited edition of 10 books. 2 of each colour: cream, yellow, green, pink and brown fsc certified recycled paper. Each is uniquely arranged and containing all 8 river patterns. Please contact me if you would like to own one.
In this collection I asked:
Can our thoughts and emotions influence the crystalline structure of water?
Dr. Masaru Emoto tried to prove that human consciousness could change water, creating harmony or dissonance in it’s structure. Based on this conjecture, I have visualised Scottish waters in a state of optimal health and balance, relative to our own inner states of peace, health and wellbeing – – –
The ‘Shapes of Water’ collection has been commissioned by the Travelling Gallery, as part of Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 2020.
