A visual essay by Chris Burkard

Water is a Demiurge

A vision by Chris Burkard

  • Even the smaller pieces of ice are larger then a car. It's hard to find scale when you're viewing them from above.
  • Water is a Demiurge
  • When the river flow is strong enough, all these smaller rivers will flow and feed into one larger stream. However at the same time, this single stream will break off and form smaller rivers that will eventually feed back into the main bend. It's a mind boggling exchange. Stunning and also hard to fully comprehend.
