- The Earth’s Water Crest and Scums I
-* The Earth’s Water Crest and Scums II
“This planet is not terra firma. It is a delicate flower and it must be cared for. It’s lonely. It’s small. It’s isolated, and there is no resupply. And we are mistreating it. Clearly, the highest loyalty we should have is not to our own country or our own religion or our hometown or even to ourselves. It should be to, number two, the family of man, and number one, the planet at large. This is our home, and this is all we’ve got.”
Scott Carpenter, Mercury 7 astronaut, 15 October 1992.
The Water Crest and Scums need to be selected for sifting the wheat from the chaff to discriminate the soup Scum from the jam Crest ; one unfit for human consumption while the other pleased the gourmets. In more than one way, the human being ans his production are the Earth Crest and Scums. « But, there is a growing danger, there is a growing hope. » Hölderlin
The Earth’s Water Crest and Scums is a two-pronged work started in 1993. The Earth’s Water Crest and Scums II is a movie in echo to The Earth’s Water Crest and Scums I, a photography exhibition partially exhibited during the 6th World Wide Water Forum in Marseille (2012)
Put together the pieces form a whole about landscape and water. The Earth’s Water Crest and Scums II was born out of the meeting of a place, a pond in le Loiret (french area), border to the Sologne and the matter of one happens to a such miraculous place if an ecological disaster occur. This two-pronged work show a whole of images which show our interaction with our home for waking up our consideration without activate a feeling of helplessness and frustration which would generated only inaction.
