Entry Description

A tomato, behind a sheet of glass, appears in every drop of water and multiplied with a random dispersion of sizes and views that are the result of chance in this water spray. It is intended that in the overall picture, the tomato is still perceived as so unfocused background behind these drops focus that convey a dynamic impression of movement. All this results in an image with a complex and chaotic system intended to convey spatial sensations.
