Canyon Cinema: Ambient Dew Point

April 07 only

Strand, Chick. 1968. Waterfall [film still].

Ambient Dew Point is the temperature needed for condensation of atmospheric water vapor to occur; the changing of state and phase.  Passage from form to form through reflections and refractions of scale, felt as one sensation to the next in a process. The truism states, Water is life.  It is always many things at once, performing.

Process and cooperation, from moment to moment, especially with great friction define communities. It is evident that one, and ones community, are part of a small body of water.  There are many myriad kinds of water, known and unknown, saturated, imbued, reflecting upon itself, articulated as analogues, correspondences and mirrors (KE)
