“Water” is a reflection of our soul.
Water is one of the basic components of life on Earth. About 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, which is the same as the proportion of water in the human body, and our body is mainly composed of water. Water is the most common substance on the earth, and it is also the most mysterious substance. There are many stories about water as a metaphor in history as well. 

Japanese scholar Masaru Emoto once published the statement that water energy affects the crystallization of water molecules based on external information. This reveals the mysterious message of water and reacts to human thoughts, music, emotions, prayers, and words. We also believe that water carries different messages in different environments, and we often feel surrounded and embraced by water in our lives. It is like a living creature, with different shapes depending on the terrain and becoming a river, lake, pond, stream, rain, ice, mist, and ocean.

Masaru Emoto proved that water is so powerful that it can cause destruction and change just through the human mind. He once had a study in which two photographers took photos of crystals. One is in a state of peace, and the other is in a state of excitement. When transferring the feeling of “Love and Gratitude” that Masaru Emoto calls into the water, the shape of water molecules into crystals is beautiful and balanced. On the other hand, when it sends negative feelings to water, the crystals get deformed.

On this occasion we want to build a “Water dress” for the Dorado Beach Resort as we believe this work fits perfectly with the theme “Patterns of Nature” for the 5th Art in Golf Triennial. We want to tangibly embrace water in the natural environment through an artistic transformation. We will research the aquatic landscapes at the El Dorado Beach Resort to choose one water surface to create an In-Site Water Dress Artwork and establish a dialogue between art and nature.
