The exhibition Vibrant Waters focuses on the element water and questions its use for photographic image production. Historically and currently, water is used in large quantities for photography, including in the extraction of precious metals and rare earths, in the semiconductor industry, or for cooling server farms. On view are artistic positions that question the utilitarian understanding of the element as a raw material.
