DESCRIPTION
Just Add Water is a collection of videos from an international group of artists that utilize similar techniques and processes for completely different outcomes. With sources originating from digital readymades or appropriated video, each artist modifies, redirects and redistributes the footage using a wide array of alterations, from simple editing to more detailed and complex reconstructions. 

The digital realm casts a dark shadow over the initial intent of images and our preconceptions of their meaning and usage into a new alternative mode of existence where the source becomes either a catalyst or an added layer of a whole new work.

Warning: Some works contain pornographic imagery.
