OAK TREE

WATER

Water can take any form… determined by it’s circumstances. In this case it takes the shape of it’s container.

THE IDEA

Three glasses of water are placed next to each other. Each glass contains the same volume of water. By rotating the glass or the water inside, the water is transformed.
The cylinder of water is transformed into a twisted cone or a paraboloid form.
The machines to make the motion are clearly visible, below the shelf.
The work is a ready made.

THE SET-UP

Three identical glasses are placed on a shelf. The machines used to make the motion are clearly visible below the shelf of the installation.
The work is a ready made.
