Four Waters
Deep Implicancy

Four Waters is as much a film project and an experiment in collaboration, as it is a set of fragments
drawn from a re-imagined cosmos.
These fragments, sounds, and stories help us convey the experiential moment of entanglement, or
rather, they describe an entangled moment prior to separation, what we call Deep Implicancy.
One such story we follow is water, both as it phase transitions with and into other matter including life,
but also as it combines disparate geographies, bodies of/in water, and four islands within them –
Lesvos, Haiti, Marshall Islands, Tiwi.
Through a series of experimental migrations and elemental crossings we begin to question the form of
the universal human, its calcified and exceptional origins, and in particular, its ethical program.
Wandering and wondering through a transformative figuring of justice, we ask, what if our image of the
world recalled phase instead of measure? And what becomes of ethics if we let go of value?
