Water is the very essence of life, and the way in which it interacts with light is completely mesmerising. The constant motion and refracting, reflecting nature of water makes light dance, bringing it to life in a way that nothing else in the world of solid reality does. This entangled relationship is shaped further by water’s surroundings as it journeys through the world in a state of continual evolution. Its ever-changing moods are woven throughout mankind’s spiritual experience, and are a deep running source of nurture to the soul. It revives with its cleansing qualities, while the weightless feeling of swimming and floating in water sets us free from gravity. When we want to escape, water in its many different forms is where we often go. The sea and sound of waves on a shore evokes such happy memories in so many of us that it becomes a universal source of optimism and renewal.
