Hidrologia
Hydrology

Com uma requintada forma de produção, acercando-se de procedimentos quase científicos, Capron em sua série trabalha com registros dos estados da água em suas passagens entre o sólido e o líquido,criando toda uma iconografia tanto orgânica quanto abstrata, que surpreende pelo rigor do preto e branco e pelo caráter inusitado das formas e estruturas, que embora quase invisíveis, tem lugar no nosso cotidiano.

The series ‘Hydrology’, explores the concept of “Material Expressivity” as advocated by Manuel DeLanda , which suggests a “deliberate use ot melody and rhythm in existing matter.” This project is a study of natural patterns that occur progressively as water transforms into ice during the prelude to winter. These complex and elaborate formations serve as organic signatures of expression On a molecular level, crystallization will occur only when the first two molecules will lock together using some microscopic particles in the water as a nucleation point. A single bacterium, a speck of dust,or some other very tiny object is necessary to provide the initial template upon which the crystal begins. Edited Artist Statement
