The Water Series: Metamorphics (2010)

Metamorphics are changes on the water: night lights reflected on its dark surface constantly build up new intense shapes of colors. It is like a game - they strive to stand out amongst the crowd. Metamorphics are little changes, upon each other, in a random progression while reenacting shapes and colors. They resemble photos from the space: fluids, gases and lights in an eternal movement. Like the stars in the sky. The deep meaning of the water (as a primordial element) is seen as a reflection of the universe: a complex structure that aggregates energies in a random fiction of the creation. Metamorphics can be seen as the result of an undesired movement - a constant fluid waving and weaving its own destiny. But the process doesn't exist - it is an illusion. A mind game.

Full Description

Metamorphics are changes on the water: night lights reflected on its dark surface constantly build up new intense shapes of colors. It is like a game - they strive to stand out amongst the crowd. Metamorphics are little changes, upon each other, in a random progression while reenacting shapes and colors. They resemble photos from the space: fluids, gases and lights in an eternal movement. Like the stars in the sky. The deep meaning of the water (as a primordial element) is seen as a reflection of the universe: a complex structure that aggregates energies in a random fiction of the creation. Metamorphics can be seen as the result of an undesired movement - a constant fluid waving and weaving its own destiny. But the process doesn't exist - it is an illusion. A mind game. One sees it as he wants it to be. And further on. Metamorphics are little narratives enclosed in long time-shutter frames. What lies in it are as many stories as the eyes that captivate the scenes, and the motion is just an illusion enabled by the gazers. Apart from the metamorphosis of each sequence there is also a detachment from its original object/subject. No longer it is the water - one cannot simply see it just like water. The Metamorphics are enforced by strong contrast, high levels of noise, and background light reduction. This process emphasizes much the whole illusion of the frames and the beauty of its existences. They pop up, unfold, burst and develop, and no longer their fate can be traced. Metamorphics are high resolution digital photographs enhanced with image software.
