    Released on 19th March 2012 Water lives… Look beneath the surface: our rivers and lakes support an amazing diversity of life, from tiny diatoms all the way up to us humans These beautiful, complex webs of freshwater life often go unseen, and their importance un-noticed However, this remarkable diversity of freshwater life is vital in supporting our everyday lives Are we capable of creating policies to manage water not only as a resource for humanity, but also as a medium for life? BioFresh is a European Union project which is putting together the scattered pieces of information about life in our rivers and lakes, to better understand, manage and protect our freshwaters for generations to come. http://www.freshwaterbiodiversity.eu http://www.biofreshblog.com biofresh@ouce.ox.ac.uk "Water Lives..." is a science communication animation designed to draw attention to the important (yet largely invisible) life that underpins and sustains our freshwater ecosystems. Produced by Paul Jepson and Rob St.John at the Oxford University School of Geography and the Environment for BioFresh - a European Union project on freshwater biodiversity - the animation brings artists and scientists together to collaborate and communicate the concept that freshwater is more than an inert resource: instead a living, dynamic system inhabited by beautiful, important organisms largely unseen by the naked eye. "Water Lives..." invites viewers to view our rivers and lakes in new ways, value the services they provide and discuss how they should be managed. The curious and otherworldly physical form of freshwater organisms such as diatoms provides abundant artistic inspiration. "Water Lives..." is a six minute piece animated by Scottish artist Adam Proctor. It is sound-tracked by a specially composed piece of music by Tommy Perman from Scottish, BAFTA award winning arts collective FOUND which samples a series of haiku about freshwater ecosystems written by environmental poet John Barlow. The content of both the animation and haiku was influenced by close consultation with BioFresh freshwater scientists Rick Battarbee from University College London and Ana Filipa Filipe from the University of Barcelona, alongside Alistair Seddon from the University of Oxford Zoology department.

                    In his most recent series of videos and stills, Heat, Thompson has again adopted the role of director over that of the actor to capture the affective experience of the desert climate in the Queensland outback. "I love the mysticism and the seductive cruelty of the desert, my home, and how it can be so illusive and alluring and potentially life threatening", Christian Thompson, SMH, September 2010. This latest video work launches itself from a transit point between visual art and performance, creating a liminal space between the present/absent and bringing into question notions of fiction/non-fiction. The environment at large is alluded to, and posits itself within the peripheral zone, whilst the individual being affected by and travelling through these surroundings dominates the point of convergence. However, the environment is a simulation, and the individual has been employed as an actress and so although the artists' connection with the land is an inherent truth, what we are presented with is a fictitious incarnation. Thompson's artistic practice successfully navigates and suggests the complexities of the post-colonial situation in Australia today. Thompson constantly plays on the boundary of binaries associated with these issues – black/white, exotic/mainstream, art/anthropology, primitive/futuristic - and never ceases to surprise with his multivalent images. The oppositions are played with and reversed and other alternative spaces are suggested. It is these alternative spaces, those that exist just outside of our central consciousness, that are universal to "the human condition" and are highlighted so poignantly through Thompson's work. - Kat Sapera 2010
