Emotions are Oceans is the opening exhibition of RADIUS as a center for contemporary art and ecology, and presents the work of nineteen artists around the subject of global water crises.

Participating artists: Ursula Biemann, Carolina Caycedo, Marjolijn Dijkman & Toril Johannessen, Xandra van der Eijk, Denise Ferreira da Silva & Arjuna Neuman, Sami Hammana, Lukas Marxt, Josèfa Ntjam, Alice dos Reis, Himali Singh Soin, Riikka Tauriainen & Paloma Ayala & Anne-Laure Franchette, Susanne M. Winterling / The Kalpana, Müge Yilmaz.

Marjolijn Dijkman and I are showing our installation Liquid Properties, a sculptural installation consisting of hand blown glass objects in a variety of shapes held by a meandering metal framework. The glass spheres are containers for samples of water taken from various sources, on this occasion from the river Schie in Delft and Delftshaven. Each of the spheres have one or more lenses integrated in the glass body, slightly magnifying the organisms, particles and pollutants inside.
