This issue is another chapter in the multidisciplinary, multifaceted research project that has been taking place at the Center for Digital Arts for over a year. In continuing the research groups, the “Water Affairs” exhibition and the Atlas of Mediterranean Liquidity, this issue also offers a broad range of contexts in which water manifests as a site and a memory, as law and as a national project, as a source of conflict and as an opening to new opportunities. Man’s powerful desire to control water — liquid that exists in constant motion, is expressed in the drawing of borders, digging ditches, enacting laws and building dams — all in a desperate attempt to discipline what cannot be disciplined. The small water lexicon created for this issue moves between the past and the future, from existing conflicts to suggestions of a different perspective on planning, management and coexistence with water.
