Watch The Stram IX

In the man-made waterways of rice paddies, the water in nature must follow artificial rules. In that way, nature is made abstract, giving rise to a new form of beauty distinct from the natural state. The theme of this work is the liveliness of the water as it follows the man-made course. This work is a ballet using the sound and the movement of the algae and water. With the waterway as the theater, I filmed the choreography of the algae that flows in the water. In episode IX of The Stream, I focus on the bubbles of oxygen that are generated in the waterway. The bubbles of oxygen are generated by algae, phytoplankton and plants through photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants use water and carbon dioxide to create their food, grow and release oxygen. Algae must grow under normal conditions in order to photosynthesize. The stream produced by drawing water up through a pump prevents aggravation of the quality of the underground water and keeps both the quality of the water and the water temperature uniform. Flowing water is a necessary element for the growth of algae in a waterway. The stream supports the growth of algae and generates oxygen.
