First Exhibition

Oceans Within/Surface Tension
Ali Kazimi
September 10-September 28
Ismaili Centre, Toronto – Exhibition Hall

Kazimi’s meditative diptych explores the multiple hidden trajectories of water and the limitations of human visual perception. The work employs extreme slow motion and stereoscopic 3D imagery to reveal the spectacular and seductive trajectories of water drops as they make their way to a liquid surface and burst into the air.
