Where the Water Is features works from students in Professor Snow Yunxue Fu’s Emerging Media Studio - Fluid Environments (Fall 2022) Class—an NYU studio class focused on self-directed projects using dynamic fluid simulation for 3D scenes within post-photographic environments. This exhibition is the culmination of these artists’ efforts to visualize the connections between water, life, and the journey in between. Historically, civilizations established their cities and towns near bodies of water as they represented a bountiful future. As the world progressed, however, humanity wrested its destiny from nature’s grasp through the development of technology, thus creating an added metaphorical responsibility to continue to find or even create water: a calling to find one’s place or create it. Each student’s project encompasses physical and mental journeys, ongoing and on the horizon, ranging from metaphysical questions about humanity’s coexistence with technology in our new liminal reality to those about one’s existence and purpose. However, despite differences in aesthetics and explorations, all projects lead back to one place: Where the Water Is.

Exhibiting Artists: June Bee & Yuanqing Xie, Jessica Dai, Ava Emmons, Amy Gao, Jesus Ulloa, Felix Kiene-Gualtieri & Lola Krueger, Lamer Mufti, Cora Rafe, Jerry Zhao, and Olivia De Chiara
