the mermaid just came across some artwork that she found very fascinating. of course, it involves water, in this case ‘captured pools’. there is a very good article about it in the peculiarly titledhi-fructose magazine. as far as the mermaid understands, this artist called gregory euclide pours nasty paint or resin onto a piece of land to ‘captures’ and later embellish it to make other landfolk think about their relationship with nature. the mermaid thinks this is very clever and wonders if it could also be done on beaches or underwater.
recently, the mermaid has wondered whether the seas themselves might be involved in a campaign to ‘capture’ the relationship between themselves and humans, as documented in this article.
