World Water Joy : A Work in Progress - Participating Artist - Arianna Giorgi

Still in blue, 2016

"This video focuses on the reflections of the water that runs in a small fountain creating pops, deliberately overexposed . These whirling movements seemed similar to the wriggle of the flames of a fire extingushed by myself, with the blue color. The creation is generated in the movement and this dance is the dance of water, fire, resistance and defeat, the swirl of life. Through the blue appears the artifice. What a strange syllogism comes to mind when you consider the roots and the meaning of this word. Two fish, apprentices dancers, in a small basin, are too clumsy to be able to follow the notes of Strauss son. However, their closeness is moving. Metaphor of infinite existence, as a waltz continues its tireless ballad, the fishes play with the notes in blue, as the first dance of an embraced couple. At the end, finally, one can hear the lapping of the water, their oxygen, endless metaphor of hope (maybe they are now swimming freely in the Beautiful Blue Danube). This, to me, is the water."
