In some videos, “WW” (water) gets liberated. By the effect of mnemonics, the recorded memory of water, golden birds are seen at the centre of the image, in its interior as wanting to fly out, shaking their wings. Does water have an aviarian memory instead of reptiloidian?, are these the new water elementals and not the undines anymore? It seems as if the metallic industry has impacted water to the extent of changing its DNA into a new element, a new entity created by man, far away from its nature, automatically and metallically to men’s service; since it is one of the most marketable products, one of the most circulated products, most deprived of its essence, its free waterways, its liberty, its purity. Metallic sounds, thundering at the videos background, reflect the industrial frequency and the intermittent insistence of money power groups to use, all of us and everyone of us, in benefit of their capitals and their never ending ambition.
