Water Study

Derek Graham

1986, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


Water Study is an ethereal examination of water and video. Using the surface of the water as a lens and the motion as a model, the tape reproduces the sensation of floating. An occasional glimpse of a figure is distorted by the optical quality of the water via sunlight. The tape is both tranquil and sensual.
