Is water shapeless? Or does it take all possible forms? In his mesmerizing video, Shinichi Maruyama from Nagano, Japan captures the countless shapes that water can take. In slow motion.
It is not the first time that Shinichi Maruyama plays with water. In his past series of photographs, titled Kusho, which means ‘writing in the sky’, he has blended black ink into water and has photographed this ‘encounter’ in order to capture in space and time the creative intersections of these two different media before they merge into one.
The result of this process is close to the art of Japanese calligraphy. Don’t you think?
