Life emerged out of water and water's role in life is elemental. There is a constant and dynamic tension between the nature of life – change, evolution, transience – and the human desire for material consumption, stability and permanence. The prehistoric and universal image of concentric circles rippling outwards from an impact underpins the notion of connection and repercussion: the ripple effect of one's actions.
