Water Drops Travel Through Bodies and Earth

Concept for art promoting inter-dependence: Crowdsourced stories using Water Drops metaphor

YAML 想法

Showcasing a cycle of water in our human bodies, animal bodies and the waters on Earth from a lense of a water drop telling stories.

People imagine how would that feel to be a "Water Drop traveling in their location", and this way they emphatise with the water, they imagine the pollution water is experiencing but also the wisdom water collects when it travels through all bodies of humans and animals, and the waters themselves. Finally, they submit "water drops stories" as text, songs, images collage or video on the website. All stories overlap with the same water cycle: rain, body, rivers, oceans. Repeat.

Spectators can submit their own reflections to this ocean of stories and realise "Oh, wow, yeah, we are really just water drops, we are all the same. How could I protect the waters myself? Hmm."

// 下雨時,水會滲入我的皮膚,流入穿過我身體的河流

滲入人皮膚的雨水量極少。這是某種詩意的畫面嗎?那麼,假設一個人創作了這樣一件藝術品——它會產生什麼樣的社會效果?我記得光年立方的想法,其目的(作爲一座211.5米高的巨大建築)是爲了讓人們體驗這個數字一光年的米數。這個想法是用那個立方毫米的數量建造一座建築物——解決方案——建築物和毫米都是宏觀的,人眼一目瞭然,這解決了想象或可視化的問題。務實的附加效果是它會吸引旅行者,因此它甚至可以收回成本。

如果這門藝術的目標是類似的知覺進步,那麼在“相互依存”的概念中,這門藝術的目標是使經驗成爲可能(否則就不能經驗)。有什麼理由可以讓人們在這裏體驗到通常不容易體驗的體驗?

// When it rains, water soaks into my skin and emerges into rivers that travel through my body

The amount of rainwater that soaks into people's skin extremely extremely small. Is this some kind of poetic picture? So, suppose one creates such a piece of art, -- what social effect it would achieve? I remember the idea of Light-Year Cube, the purpose of which (being a huge 211.5 meter height building) were to be to allow one to experience that number of meters that make up one light year. The idea was to make a building with that number of cubic millimetres, -- the solution -- both the building and the millimetre are macroscopic, visible at a glance of a human eye, which solves the problem of imagining or visualizing. Pragmatic added effect was it would attract travellers, so it could even probably pay for itself.

If this art is aiming for similar perceptual advances, then what thing within the concept of "interdependence" would this art aim to make experience-able (that is not experience-able otherwise). What is the rationale, that would allow here to make one experience what usually is not easily experienced?


關於滲入皮膚的雨水量是正確的。是的,那張照片作爲一幅詩意的畫面進入了我的腦海。

我也在考慮我喝水如何塑造我的想法的影響(目前,當切換到只喝礦泉水時,現在第 12 天,我感覺更平靜了)。所以也許喝水和淋在皮膚上是一個更好的例子,表明相互依存。

// 在“相互依賴”的概念中,這門藝術的目標是使體驗成爲可能(否則就不能體驗)

嗯,水構成我們的身體和水構成地球的統一點;水一直在運動,遍及我們的身體和整個星球;一點,水是智慧,沒有它生命就不會存在。

我還想證明水會影響情緒狀態(我的飲水示例),情緒狀態會影響決策(創建什麼項目,消費什麼產品)。我在這裏做一個概括,我們體內的水會使人類產生破壞性的想法/建設性的想法。我們喝的水越乾淨,我們的思想就越乾淨,我們創造的行業就越乾淨。反之,水污染得越多,思想的破壞性就越大,對工業的污染就越大。在這裏,我想補充一下負面情緒如何導致破壞性想法,從而污染行業。

歡迎反饋!這是一個正在做的草案:)

True in regards to the amount of rain soaking into skin. And yes that picture came into my mind as a poetic picture.

I was also thinking about an effect of how water I drink shapes my thoughts (currently, experiencing this when swithched to drinking only mineral water, the 12th day now and I feel calmer). So perhaps drinking water vs to rain on skin is a better example that shows interdependence.

// what thing within the concept of "interdependence" would this art aim to make experience-able (that is not experience-able otherwise)

hmm, a unifing point that water makes up our body and water makes up the planet Earth; a point that water is always in motion, throughout our body and throughout the planet; a point that water is intelligence without which life wouldn't exist.

also I'd like to show that water impacts emotional state (my water drinking example) and emotional state impacts decisions (what projects are created, what products are consumed). I'm making a generalisation here that water in our bodies makes humans to come up with destructive thoughts/constructive thoughts. the cleaner the water we drink, the cleaner the thoughts we think, the cleaner the industries we create. and the opposite, the more polluted the water, the more destructive the thoughts, the more polluting the industries. here I want to add how negative emotions contribute to destructive thoughts, and thus polluting industries.

feedback welcome! this is a draft in-doing now :)

Ruta,

// 水構成我們的身體和水構成地球的統一點;水一直在運動,遍及我們的身體和整個星球;一點,水是智慧,沒有它生命就不會存在。

[Ruta],我明白了。那麼,如何使這些點變得可感知呢?這件藝術品是雕像、拼貼畫、視頻(如傑森席爾瓦的)還是其他什麼?這門藝術將如何運作?

// a unifing point that water makes up our body and water makes up the planet Earth; a point that water is always in motion, throughout our body and throughout the planet; a point that water is intelligence without which life wouldn't exist.

[Ruta], I see. And so, how would these points be made perceivable? Would this piece of art be a statue, a collage, a video (like Jason Silva's), or something else? How would this art work?


[Mindey] 哦,我還不知道媒體呢!當我開始一個項目時(開始搞混這個概念)然後我就會知道它會是什麼樣子:) 第一個想法當然是視頻、音頻、口語、一些數字體驗。雖然對我個人來說,這個想法是在我食物中毒並被迫更換我喝的水時產生的,所以也許某種互動體驗讓觀衆必須品嚐不同的水(甚至進行礦泉水飲食),有趣的

[Mindey] oh I don't know about the medium yet! when I start a project (start messing around with the concept) then I will know how it's going to look like :) first thoughts were of course, video, audio, spoken word, some digital experience. although to me personally this idea came when I had a food poisoning and was pushed to change the water I drink, so perhaps some sort of interactive experience where spectators have to taste different water (or even go on a mineral water diet), would be interesting


// 就我個人而言,這個想法是在我食物中毒並被迫更換我喝的水時產生的

哦,親愛的,我明白了。很高興你只喝了水;) 事實上,水是一種很好的溶劑,可以清除通路,包括代謝通路,因此,https://0oo.li/method/948/shapeflow 的結論之一://0oo.li/method/948/shapeflow)的想法,將是使用液體疏通和清除形狀流動的路徑。

// 互動體驗,觀衆必須品嚐不同的水

那麼,不同的水會有什麼不同的味道呢?我覺得不同品牌的瓶裝水沒有太大區別,肯定有一些礦泉水品牌的鹽濃度更高,但那是那些鹽的味道,而不是水本身。關於不同水的質量,您自己注意到了哪些差異,並認爲其他人也應該(比如通過這種藝術)?

我的問題可能有點好奇,因爲我試圖瞭解您想法的關鍵:您建議採取什麼行動方案,以及如何實現這種影響? (使蝴蝶效應發生的想法的本質是什麼?如果製作了這樣的藝術,爲什麼會發生蝴蝶效應?)

// to me personally this idea came when I had a food poisoning and was pushed to change the water I drink

Oh dear, I see. Happy you got away with just water ;) In fact, water, being a good solvent, clears pathways, including metabolic pathways, so, one of the conclusions from https://0oo.li/method/948/shapeflow idea, would be to use a liquid to unclog and clear pathways for shapes to flow.

// interactive experience where spectators have to taste different water

And so, how would the different water taste differently? I don't feel much difference between different brands of bottled water, there definitely are some mineral water brands with higher concentrations of salts, but that's the taste of those salts then, not the water per se. What kind of differences had you yourself noticed, and think that others should too (say, via such art), about the quality of different water?

My question may be a bit inquisitive, because I'm trying to get at the crux of your idea: what course of action do you propose, and how it would work to achieve that impact? (What's the essence of the idea that would make the butterfly effects happen? Why would the butterfly effects happen, given such art is made?)


[Mindey] 是的,我喜歡疏通堵塞的想法!睡覺前,我想着體內的水:壓力會使血液呈酸性嗎?認爲積極將血液變成正常的 pH 值或喝鹼性水來清理。我當然不知道這是不是真的!

然後今天早上我問了自己一個不同的問題:水對我來說是什麼? “就像有家的感覺,我可以和它互動。水是家。智能(過去幾代人),住在家裏的圖書館。”

從這裏,我記得昨天我在玩項目名稱(在我在 o2oo 上分享這個想法之前) - 滴水不斷涌現,立陶宛語中的“lasai”。滴滴是必不可少的比喻,下雨天,感覺智慧來了;當我哭泣時也是如此——通過情感表達,有些東西想要出來。我經常用“水滴”來比喻創造力:想法謎題就像水滴,當許多水滴聚集在一起時,就有了一片海洋:一個想法的主體。

然後今天我又想到了水滴,創造一種體驗是多麼酷,讓觀衆進入一個巨大的水滴,感覺就像在繭裏,在流動的水中是安全的,就像生活一樣,當創造力/想象力創造出繭時穿越混亂。這可以被創造爲一個雕塑——走進一個巨大的水滴形狀的噴泉,但即使你周圍下雨,你仍然保持乾燥。或 VR 當然可以提供幫助。但我的能力/時間有限,所以我可能會探索關於這個主題的視頻、音頻、講故事。

所以,在“水即智能”的主題下,我想探索“體驗水是什麼感覺”主題:“家是安全的”,然後水旅行(“當奶奶,媽媽和孩子在同時”)。

回答你的最後一個問題 [Mindey],我想說我的想法提出“在家”和“流動性”作爲我們可以從水中學習的心理狀態,有了這些狀態,我們人類將在生活中和平地移動並互動以一種歡迎/關懷和流暢的方式彼此相處,因此,懷着這樣的意圖,我們將創造一個和平的社會(沒有污染,沒有任何人的劣勢)。它基本上是關於一種核心感覺和核心價值,揭示在人們心中,它會伴隨着人們的日常生活,然後影響他們的決定。

[Mindey] yeah, I love the idea of unclogging! before sleep, I thought about water inside the body: does stress make blood acidic? think positive to turn blood to normal pH or drink alkaline water to clean up. surely I don't know if it's true at all!

then this morning I asked a different question to myself: What is Water to me? "Like feeling home, I can interact with it. Water is home. Intelligence (of past generations), a library that lives in the home."

from here, I remembered that yesterday I was playing with the project names (before I shared this idea here on o2oo) - drops kept coming up, "lasai" in Lithuanian. Drops are an essential metaphor, when it rains, I feel that wisdom is coming; same way when I cry - through emotional expression something wants to come out. I often use "drops" as a metaphor for creativity: idea puzzles are like drops, when many drops come together, there is an ocean: a body of the idea.

then today I thought about drops again, how cool it would be to create an experience where a spectator enters a giant drop, and feels like inside a cocoon, safe inside a moving water, just like life is, when creativity/imagination creates that cocoon to move through chaos. this could be created as a sculpture - step inside a fountain that has a giant drop shape but inside you stay dry, even if it rains all around you. or VR of course could help. but I'm limited with my abilities/time, so I may explore video, audio, storytelling on this theme.

so, following "water as intelligence" theme, I'd like to explore "experience what is it like to be water" theme: "home is safe", and then water travels ("being a grandmother, a mom and a child at the same time").

to answer your last question [Mindey], I'd say my idea proposes "being home" and "fluidity" as mental states that we can learn from water, and with these states, we, humans, would move peacefully through life and interact with one another in a welcoming/caring and fluid way, and thus with such intention we would create a peaceful society (with no pollution, no disadvantage of anyone). it is basically about a core feeling and a core value to reveal in people's hearts, that would stay with them daily, and then shape their decisions.

Ruta,

// 創造一種體驗,讓觀衆進入一個巨大的水滴,感覺就像在繭裏,在流動的水中是安全的,這是多麼酷

是的,會很酷。這讓我想起了“Black Hole Dome”的想法,這是一種如何在天空中創造體驗的方法的想法。但是,您沒有描述如何在您的想法中建立這個“水滴”。所以,看起來你更像是在這裏集思廣益,而不是分享一個可驗證的想法。

// 我想說我的想法提出“在家”和“流動性”作爲我們可以從水中學習的心理狀態

啊,我明白了...... [Ruta],試圖在社會中變得敏感、有同理心和“流動性”似乎就像是水分子或一種很好的 溶劑 /wiki/溶劑)。

也許英語將“解決”這個詞賦予兩個含義(1)液化其中的固體的含義,以及(2)解決問題的含義,暗示......這個想法並不是全新的(如果沒有呢?智力,是什麼解決問題?),但也許你的藝術可以。

// how cool it would be to create an experience where a spectator enters a giant drop, and feels like inside a cocoon, safe inside a moving water

Yeah, would be pretty cool. That reminds me of the idea of "Black Hole Dome", which is an idea of a method how to create an experience a black hole in the sky. However, you didn't describe how this "drop" would be erected in your idea. So, looks like more you trying to brainstorm right here, rather than sharing a verifiable idea.

// I'd say my idea proposes "being home" and "fluidity" as mental states that we can learn from water

Ah, I see... [Ruta], trying to be sensitive, empathic and "fluid" within society may seem like being that water molecule or a fluid that is a great solvent.

Perhaps the English language attributing two meanings to the word "solve" (1) the meaning of liquifying solids within it, and (2) the meaning of cracking a problem, hints that... the idea is not entirely new (what if not intelligence, is what solves problems?), but perhaps your art could be.


// 但是,您沒有描述如何在您的想法中建立這個“水滴”。所以,看起來你更像是在這裏集思廣益,而不是分享一個可驗證的想法。

是的,我的目標不是驗證,而是一起想象和共同創造:) 這很有趣。如果不是在一個想法從思想泡泡演變成更具體的東西之前在同一空間中添加謎題,那麼如何使用這個空間?也許那時的想法甚至還有孩子,是的!和項目,耶耶!和他們項目中的各種創作者然後可以回答細節

我非常喜歡你關於“成爲溶劑”的觀點。是的,巨滴是和平社會的溶劑。看?我們只是將兩個拼圖連接在一起:)

// However, you didn't describe how this "drop" would be erected in your idea. So, looks like more you trying to brainstorm right here, rather than sharing a verifiable idea.

yes I aim not for verification, but imagining together and cocreating :) it's fun. how else to use this space, if not for adding puzzles into same space until an idea evolves from a thought bubble into something more concrete? perhaps then idea has even children, yay! and projects, yay yay! and various creators in their projects then can answer the details

I like your point on "be a solvent" a lot. yes, Giant Drops being Solvents for Peaceful Society. see? we just connected two puzzles together :)


// 如果不是在一個想法從思想泡泡演變成更具體的東西之前將謎題添加到相同的空間中,那麼如何使用這個空間? //

嗯,如果是拼圖,應該屬於問題(會盡量增加直接在問題下添加項目的能力) :) 而且,正如你所說,“水即智能”是一個主題,所以,一個類別,所以一個問題,或者更確切地說,試圖問_“我應該如何繼續探索這個我還沒有完全充實的概念?”_(最好在發佈之前充實想法,這樣它就不是一個問題“如何這會起作用嗎?”但答案是“這就是它的工作方式,這是詳細信息”)。我想我需要更容易地轉換類型(即,在問題/想法/項目之間轉換內容)......

// 也許那麼想法甚至有孩子,是的!和項目,耶耶!和他們項目中的各種創作者然後可以回答細節//

是的,他們可能是。 :) 期待這個主題下的項目。 ^_^

// how else to use this space, if not for adding puzzles into same space until an idea evolves from a thought bubble into something more concrete? //

Well, if it's a puzzle, it should belong to questions ('ll try to add an ability to add projects directly under questions) :) And, as you said, "Water as intelligence" is a theme, so, a category, so a question, or rather, an attempt to ask "how should I continue my exploration with this concept that I don't yet quite fleshed out?" (ideas better be fleshed out before posting, so that it's not a question "how would this work?" but an answer "this is how it would work, and here are the details"). I guess I'll need to make it easier to transition the type (i.e., convert content between question/idea/project)...

// perhaps then idea has even children, yay! and projects, yay yay! and various creators in their projects then can answer the details //

Yeah, they could be. :) Looking forward to projects under this theme. ^__^

Mindey,

//('將嘗試添加直接在問題下添加項目的能力)

是的,好主意 [Mindey]!

那麼我的綜合能力是否有所提高? :D 看,我更新了這個想法並添加了一個父問題(包含我們想法謎題的摘要!)和一個我第一次嘗試的項目:) 哈!

// ('ll try to add an ability to add projects directly under questions)

yeah, great idea [Mindey]!

So am I improving on my synthesis? :D see, I updated this idea and added a parent question (with a summary of our idea puzzles!) and a project with my first attempts :) ha!
