What does a meditative work of art consisting of thousands of drops of evaporated water look like? One spot at a time, I drip clear water onto xuan paper, painstakingly creating nothingness. The water seeps into the fibers, an evaporated flow that leaves only a faint imprint on the crimped paper. Page after page it accumulates into a waterless waterfall, a memory.
The installation "Waterfall of Drops" comprises about 70 sheets of paper in different sizes with thousands of water impressions, hung precariously over a Spirolina cultivation pond at the Ecological Greenhouse in Ein Shemer, as part of the Artaftefet" art event, 2019 (curator: Atar Geva).
