Water Sculptures are a series of works by Japanese artist Shinichi Maruyama where the water is thrown into the air and photographed during its rapid flight.
Created in 2009, the shots capture the water in the random shape it assumes in mid-air, taking the form of an abstract sculpture, born from human action combined with the power of nature and gravity.
Shinichi Maruyama is fascinated by the fragility of things and by their changeableness. Through water, he comes to a creation which changes constantly, taking up a new shape in each moment.
The artist begins the artistic operation with his gesture and ends it by capturing it with his camera. Everything occurring in the middle is the improvisation of the water which shows the essence of its existence.
