EAST HAMPTON, NYOLFACTIVEATTRACTIONS: THREE PARTS WATER is acollaborative work by Julia Davis and John Zinonos about submersion. Inspiredby the lack or presence of water in three global terrains, the artists createdan exploration into the deep. The voyage begins with the Desert, a starklandscape devoid of moisture and represented in an odor of warm spices and drywoods. After traversing through this arid environment, the traveler is met withthe wetness of condensation - dew drops collecting on plant leaves, humid air,and damp earth of the Jungle. Finally, the Ocean embodies complete saturation;a tingling sensation in the nose twirls sparkling coolness with sea salt,triggering the refreshing feeling of freedom that comes from diving into wateron a hot summer day.
