About the Project

Long long time ago the whole Earth was covered with water, water flows, shapes its way, and passes off, influencing our life. Starting from melting glaciers, water searching his way to find a sea. Through the rocky mountains, muddy marshes and the dry areas rivers finish their ways in beautiful estuaries.
The aerial point of view reveals the real character of landscapes. Coastal plains and tidal areas become masterpieces in abstraction, often unknown to those who only see them from usual perspective. In the lagoons we can see beaufiful shapes made by flow, and in the same time we can observe how water influencing agriculture, industry, tourism, architecture, natural habitats of animals and our lives in general.
If we don’t act responsibly, one day water will disappear, and we will see only the traces of it.
This is what the WATER.SHAPES.EARTH is about. It is art of the water shaped planet.
