Locus of Water

“Water is an essential element of living things, and a circle represents infinity, harmony, and unity. When a droplet of water falls on a flat surface, it creates a circle. In previous works, I have used circular elements as a metaphor for cells. In “Locus of Water,” I have used circles in a way such that they seem to be drawn together into clusters by some unifying force exerted by a condition of belonging. The clusters represent the location of the essence of life, and the way in which all living things are themselves an organization of smaller elements. The arrangement of the circles implies movement of water toward its locus.”
