The Impression of Water

The Impression of Water is a short film which explores the interaction of reflection, color, brightness, and movement through liquid space. Using food coloring, tap water, glitter, and mylar I created an oceanscape within a glass vase. Deep reds and bright blues reflect on silver sheets within the whirlpool of light. The film explores visuals of peace and war and everything in between in an oceanic galaxy.
