ULTRA WATER FLOW | the PhotoPhore exhibition
The PhotoPhore is proud to announce the video exhibition ULTRA WATER FLOW. The screening will be hosted at the Hong Kong Design Institute (Hong Kong) from the 1st to the 13th of June 2016, during the Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2016.
The PhotoPhore’s selection of international art videos was developed around the theme of the WATER and its FLOW, exploring the symbolical and metaphorical meanings of it, as well as how we understand and interpret the power of this life force.
María Kjartans & Biggi Hilmars, “We are weather”
ULTRA WATER FLOW is a stream that flows, not only a stream of water but a flow of connections among spaces, people and things. A flow that brings information and beauty, able to reach everyone and to change and improve realities and situations. The flow of time, the flow of pictures and memories in the time. An endless flow of people and pieces of existence. Selected works underline the relations between art, science and technology too.
Korb, “Infinity Water”
Among more than 200 submissions received, we have selected 10 works which differently represents the multiple meanings embodied by water: from videos which make an ode to its vital force – extremely linked to the existence and evolution of the life itself – and to its physical and aesthetical features which fascinated the viewers, to artworks that explore the spiritual experiences generated by water and nature, and that visualize the metaphorical connections with the human nature, the spirit of discovery, the identity quest, and the link with mathematical data and contemporary flow of information.
