Where does water come from?, 2021

Where does water come from? is a 5 minutes long audio-visual piece originally exhibited at MUTEK JP+MX Virtual Gallery. The artwork explores the creation of water. Yamashita’s imagination flows deeper into space, into the atomic state, into the ocean, constantly changing its state of being.

Artist Statement

Water flows from high to low.
On the Earth at least.
Water is everywhere, in every state, even within us.
When you trace the source of the water, we have to think that it cycles.
But then, how was water born to begin with?
This is still a mystery. Some researchers suggest it came with water-rich asteroids.
