"Water Table” questions the possibility of symbiotic relationships between the technological and natural. Pairing a synthetic and unprocessed representation of light refraction in water, the composition highlights a machine-trained “table” floating above the dataset that trained it. This video questions how humans can engage in a two-way technological consumption that give back to the materials that comprise its existence.
