Fluvial Dialects is a series of three kinetic sound installations – Palingenesis, Con·d/s·ense, D•still – that use water as its central medium to create a meditative space where visitors can listen to the sound of water being purified, condensed and distilled.
Fluvial dialects aim to raise awareness about global water scarcity and speculate on potential technologies that offer hope for a better future. Godec places subtle natural sounds within the context of new media art and water environmentalism, while he attempts to transcend the viewer to a higher level of awareness.
