The project contains two parts:
A performance recorded on the river Vardar and Ohrid Lake.
An exhibition in the CIX gallery, consisted of an installation and a
video projection from the performance.
The performance is consisted from lots of written messages in several
languages (English, Greek, Albanian, Macedonian, Spanish...) put into
transparent bottles, that are marked with small flags. They were put in
the river and the lake to float, where they begin their own travel,
waiting to be found and read. The installation is made from about twenty
bottles thrown around on the 7 cm layer of sound on the part of the
gallery floor. The messages are put in the bottles to tell that they will
not wander around eternally and they will come to the goal.
Idea for this project have very deep root because desire of people to
transfer messages is one of the oldest whishes of people and definitely
biggest stimulance for a finding an alphabet, telecommunications etc. and
they improve all of that in millenniums only to satisfy their own utility
for communication and transfer of the messages which are taken along.
The idea of the project I seek You On Water comes from the very frequent
use of the software ICQ that millions of people are using daily for
transferring of messages.
