Taking the waters

Jack is playing in the Salzano River near the village of Sottochiesa in northern Italy. We were involved in a mixed art/science residency there, looking at the industrial-scale commercialisation of water. We were particularly interested in the projection of magical properties onto the nearby San Pellegrino spring over the last few hundred years, which allowed a global enterprise to develop. Despite all that context, Jack seemed more effortlessly connected in time and place to the ideas we were interested in, through his natural and unscripted play.
