‘Ground Water Mirror’ connects the waters of Berlin to Auckland to Whanganui. It asks whether we seek out Nature in order to appreciate nature itself, or rather to find a solution to urban living as a means for self-reflection. The title is a slight mistranslation of Grundwasserspiegel, the German word for water table.

Berlin’s ground water mirror is never far beneath one’s feet, it flows through a network of overhead pipes as it is pumped across the city from construction sites to waterways. These pipes are a reminder of the connectedness of water, and why we long for another kind of water; the kind we feel the need to travel to in order to find.
