In this video, Bright Ugochukwu Eke discusses how water’s fundamental role in human life makes it a “universal medium” with the ability to bind all humans together. Eke’s large-scale installations address humankind’s complex, often destructive relationship with the environment, commonly using water as their theme. His interest in water as a connecting force led him to create the site-specific installations Ripples and Storm 1 and Ripples and Storm 2 for the Tang Museum exhibition Environment and Object - Recent African Art (2011), working on site at the Tang with student assistants from Skidmore.
