  1. I finally have been able to think of what these ripple photos are reminding me of, and it is – making strokes in India ink with a Chinese brush, my hand is making motions as I look at the photos (really, that’s how I figured it out). Suddenly the translation from water to ink strokes gave me a whole new way to look at these, as flat patterns vs. moving object. Wow!

  2. Japanese artists were particularly excellent observers of water movements and patterns, noticing the details of the transient patterns and translating them into their paintings. Some of the images and videos I have managed to capture are particularly reminiscent of Japanese artwork, at least to my way of thinking, for example:
