“The First Drop of Water” created November 2012. Another aspect of image making that intrigues me is how this process is related to philosophical contemplation. Have you ever thought – in visual terms – what the first moment of something must have been like. (This requires a degree of fantasising or intuitive freedom, not literal thinking). Consider the moment that the first drop of water emerged out of the earth – what a pioneering moment. Such a moment must have contained the future potential of all the oceans; the essence of all water creatures and if we are indeed 90% water, this moment must have also contained all of us as well.
