水 (shuǐ) is an illustrated book on water. It offers a collection of fresh ideas and perspectives to experience and imagine this common and commonly overlooked substance.
Water runs through every civilization.
There is water, the spout, and the fountain, ink wash and Impressionism, Venice and Chand Baori, wine and poison, the hammam and the onsen, Vikings and iceberg hunters, rice, baptism, the milliliter, and thin-lipped cups...
As source and resource, water has quenched the thirst of every kind: it supplies the artist as well as the doctor, the astronaut and the diver, the poet and the pious, the chef, the king, and the farmer.
Shuǐ is a collection of ideas from those who draw from this wellspring. Accompanied by original artwork, each idea is interpreted typographically—lines flow here or rain down there, then gush, meander, eddy, or pool still, collecting into a volume that is wet through with insight and imagination.
Anonymous produced the book with text contributed by Yvonne Xu and art and typography design by Germaine Chong. It launched at the Bangkok Art Book Fair 2022 and is part of the first Anonymous Bangkok project that investigates water used as a material and medium in art, design, food, and culture.
