About the Water issue
It’s what the human body is mostly made of
It’s what makes Earth unique
It’s what the barren surface of Mars once had, but has since lost
We play in it
It quenches our thirst
We anoint the sick with it
Along with Climate Change, Plastics, Nuclear Proliferation, and Surveillance Capitalism, water, or the lack of clean water, threatens to cause unimaginable world suffering here in the 21st century
In our world, you can find it as a liquid
or a gas
or a solid
it changes state easily
the hard ice cube that takes so much force for my teeth to crush, or would hurt if I threw it at you, will be an innocent puddle within the hour
Can you imagine a world without clouds?
For our upcoming Water issue, the editorial team at Diptych invites you to consider Water and it’s role in our lives here on earth.
Write some fiction.
Or a poem.
Freeze your anime figurines in blocks of ice and photograph them melting.
Or make a painting of clouds.
Make a video of people surfing in the ocean.
Record the sounds of water dripping in a subterranean cavern.
Choreograph a dance in or about water.
Diptych seeks your creativity.
