Le Barrage à Nuages (The Cloud Dam). 2015. J.Harms. 10x15cm. Acrylic on paper.

There is a community in South America that uses nets to extract water from the fog that covers their hills during the night. Water is such a precious ressource, we waste it a lot, it melts a lot, I think it is possible that one day, it will have to be “harvested”. When visiting Oban in Scotland, I saw this enormous Roman type circus called “McCaig’s Tower” overlooking the city. Such constructions were often commissioned by Scottish Philantropists at the beginning of the 20th century, in order to ensure the local crafstmen were supplied with a job, and could feed their families. I used that folly to illustrate the dam.

  1. I love the image and the fact that it illustrates a place constructed out of thought, and very thoughtful, too. (Hope that makes sense??) I especially like the clouds.
