Water-wheel.net stopped streaming

Sadly Waterwheel, the wonderful platform for streaming dedicated to water, isn’t streaming any more. For their last event Water Works! I selected three entries to a call about :
– how WATER WORKS despite climate change, financial crises, war, and global environmental damage
– how art, science, design, and activism can reinstate the social, cultural and environmental value of water
– how we can give recognition to the indispensable and invaluable ways that water works

Here they are:

There’s an Invisible Place far away by Mikko Lipiäinen.
This video is a dramatization of the editing history of a Wikipedia article ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’ which describes the phenomenon of discarted plastics accumulation in the North Pacific Ocean.
Anyone interested in the humanity and dynamics of collaborating, sharing and producing knowledge should watch this video in its full 24 min eloquence.

Wash Up  by James Cunningham. Direct link : https://youtu.be/ITdw60Ej_B8
One hand, one video, cut in two, two hands, two videos, one inversed, both mirrored => one kitchen sink, four hands dancing. Four hands dancing.

L’amour que rien by Antoine Moreau.
I don’t know if this is an ode to love, a warning or an incitation to open the eyes and to stop to turn turn turn.

On Waterwheel you can still browse through almost five years of experimenting on a free platform for the awareness, celebration, care & accessibility of water everywhere. Thanks Suzon.  Sad.
