I am fascinated by the fragility and incompleteness that
exists with all things beautiful.I throw water into the air, and in mid-flight it changes shape constantly, being pulled by gravity and bursting with surface tension. Each flight barely lasts more than a second. In each moment, the water becomes a beautiful figure which can be defined as a “part man-made and part natural” sculpture. I wanted to capture these beautiful impermanent water sculptures by photographing them in the exact moment, when the essence of their existence is pure.
