By applying a liquid film of iron nanoparticles to water’s surface, visual artist Moses Hacmon captures the unique imprint of water’s movement as never before seen. The resulting images are the “Faces of Water.” Printed on massive 4×8-foot aluminum panels, “Faces of Water” is a larger-than-life interactive exhibition opening in at Hub Los Angeles on November 11.
Moses Hacmon’s photographic series “Faces of Water” is part art and part science. This larger-than-life exhibition of 18 images transferred to massive 4 x 8-foot sheets of aluminum transforms and advances our understanding of water, exposing a layer of this elementary, life-giving substance previously hidden from sight. By applying a liquid film of iron nanoparticles to water’s surface, Hacmon captures the unique imprint of the water’s movement.
“Faces of Water”, the exhibition, is an interactive experience that will tour schools and non-profit organizations starting January 2014. This exhibit will inform students and community about water and the role it has in shaping our lives, encouraging conservation and inspiring creative thought. The outcome of a successful crowdfunding campaign and overwhelming community support, “Faces of Water” has grown from a one-time exhibition of Hacmon’s works on paper into a fully-funded educational exhibition that will be FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC across the nation.
The debut of this exhibition will take place on November 11, 2013, in at Hub LA.
