The Water Flux

No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man. – Heraclitus

 

THE WATER FLUX

Have you ever felt really thirsty? Have you ever been in the rain? Have you ever seen the ocean? Human life is designed by the perpetual presence and need of water. As the water flux changes, we change as well. Yet this relationship has had an evolution in which humanity has played a major role and has found different senses to water’s existence, thus we create different definitions of our existence. Water is life, but water is also joy, love, dreams, wealth, business, adventure, misfortune, destruction or death. Through water we live and through it we see ourselves, our days past and our days to come. What is water to you?

The Water Flux is an audiovisual web-based collaborative experiment in which we see ourselves in this world. It collects short personal documentary films from all over the world exploring our relation with water, either in abundance or lack, no matter if water is tears or clouds, or if we drink it or flush it. It is a space for discussion, for artistic experimentation, for environmental awareness, for political outreach and mainly for everybody to express their (his or her?) ideas on film.
