The Power of Water
Water is the most important element for our body as well as for the outside world.
Sometimes we are afraid of water: when it rains a lot and rivers are in flood, or when the sea blows up and waves are threatening to overflow the earth. Then, unconsciously, water is a killer, a symbol of death.
But primarily, Water generates life: during nine months human being is grows in water-like fluid which creates a save and friendly place for a baby.
Water transformations are miraculous: when temperature decreases its volume increases, and water becomes ice. Water is the only element that changes like this. Volume of all the other elements increases when the temperature increases.
When Water goes down, it generates huge power. And a human has used this power in the past in the watermill. Nowadays, water generates power at the hydroelectric power stations.
On May 2011 when I was in Herend in Hungary, I was stunned by the ability of Water to produce parallel visions in a pond. These non-realistic, inverted and fluid images served a mirror to the impermanent and misleading reality.
