Still from the film Benjamin Zadig, Precious Balance Walk 

I Still Live In Water is an intuitive art project working with water, creating in the creation and creating together with creation by the artists Felicia Konrad and Johan Haugen, Malmö/Sweden. 

The project is based on an intuitive process and dialogue hoping to inspire awareness about water, and the escalating situation with how we treat our Oceans, how we use freshwater, and the way we pollute the water on earth. It is a living-learning process at the same time as it is an art project, to grow and express a human identity that connects, sense, explore
and expand in being creatures of water, a part of the hydrosphere. Interactivity and collaborations are a red thread, working with interactive performance, sound pieces, photo, film, and workshops. 

"What does water know about you that you don't know about yourself?"
Felicia Konrad paraphrasing the poet a rawlings paraphrasing Robert MacFarlane 

"We are all water in the same ocean" Yoko Ono

"We Are All at Sea" Astrida Neimanis

"What you know in your heart, truly know is possible, is possible. We make it possible with the will. What we imagine mentally becomes our world. That is just one of the many things I have learned from water." Masaru Emoto

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing, in the end, can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone… You are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” Margaret Atwood
