I started with trying to get a negative shape of water in gypsum. I soon found out that the shape casted the material that was holding the water; plastic or rubber. It seemed as if the shape of water itself, was mysterious and ungraspable. Therefore I decided to leave the containing material aside, and simply subject the gypsum to the water itself. This resulted in a research into all the interesting textures that are left, after water has effected a material. The solid materials are shaped by the water, like islands. They lose their solid form, dissolve at the edges, and dry again to the air in a new shape, which is decided by the nature of the water.
