  • "Water is absolutely key to everything that happens internally and externally, and it is the most fantastic metaphor for how everything operates. It can stand for a stream of thought, cascades of neural activity in your mind. It can stand for the idea of a circulatory system in the landscape or the body interchangeably. It seems to be something that kind of connects everything and maybe the underlying desire to make images in the first place was to talk about what underlies the visible rather than to just show the visible." —Susan Derges
