What sets works of water art apart from ordinary earth art? For starters, water is an amazingly variable medium with which to work – water flows with gravity, water levels rise and fall with time and water even transforms from a liquid into a solid depending on temperature. From underwater sculpture parks to massive surface installation projects, the possibilities of water art are virtually endless.
Of course the possibilities of water don’t stop with its liquid form. Some of the most amazing works of water art, architecture and sculpture have been done in snow or ice. From massive sculptures and monumental buildings to detailed ice carvings and delicate snow designs, water has at least as much potential at sub-zero than above-zero temperatures.
