Footprints of Water

Footprints of Water is an abstract documentary project that explores a different view of water and our interactions with it. The images are created by evaporating 1 milliliter water samples on sheets of glass. The material that forms the spots is the non-volatile contaminants that were in the water. The term “contaminants,” in this case, is not necessarily a negative term; it only means things that are not water.
