Jason Berlin, USA

"In this site specific installation (deuterium) I am using everyday objects and vessels that are designed to move, carry, or store water in some form. The name refers to heavy hydrogen which is used in the production of heavy water which was one of the ingredients in the first atomic bomb. By nestling the blue pods underneath the trees they become water bubbles or water feeding station for the life of the trees in its area.
This piece I have created is about mans relationship to nature and in particular his relationship to water and the environment. I find it hard not to focus on water when we are living on a planet that is 71% water and that in our bodies we have 55% to 78% water at any given time. I used the color ultramarine because it has a spiritual essence about it and it has been one of the most costly and precious colors in history, In Latin ultramrinus literally means
Beyond the sea It is my hope that we as the stewards of this planet can use our technology to keep the planet and ourselves in balance"

Socrates' Triple Filter Test
In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in highesteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said,"Socrates, do you know what I just heard about your friend?""Hold on a minute," Socrates replied. "Before telling me anything I'dlike you to pass a little test.It's called the Triple Filter Test.""Triple filter?""That's right," Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about myfriend, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you'regoing to say. The first filter is Truth. Have you made absolutely surethat what you are about to tell me is true?""No," the man said, "actually I just heard about it and...""All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true ornot. Now let's try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is whatyou are about to tell me about my friend something good?""No, on the contrary...""So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me some thing bad about him,but you're not certain it's true. You may still pass the test though,because there's one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what youwant to tell me about my friend going to be useful to me?""No, not really.""Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neithertrue nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?"
