ABOUT THE WORK
Hold the heavens in your hands! Make these clusters of virtual moisture, move with graceful hand gestures. Participants are invited to spin clouds of virtual water, holding the whole sky in their hands, synchronized in rhythm to make the heavens move. The visitor is invited to move the sky and contemplate our connection to the cycle of water. This graceful motion is a movement that is old and deeply connected to Central Asia, here made possible again in light and lasers.
This project responds to UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
