Johanna Reich (Germany, 1977) , Water on asphalt, 1’25”, 2014.
The artist is painting with water on the street. Due to the specific camera angle the immaterial water-painting becomes visible. The reflection draws the faraway sky and trees closer to its “destroyer“ – the asphalt. Water on Asphalt shows the ambiguity between digital progress and a vanishing nature. It remains a “memento mori” – a virtual memory reflecting the approaching ecological dilemma of our times.
