The title of this exhibition suggests that ideas and thoughts are soaked. They flow over the restricted surface or space until the water stops flowing, dries up, evaporates or leaves an representation or illusion of thoughts, dreams and coincidences. Is the flow permanent? Does it stop once the water is no longer percieved? Does the work take over and the flow over the viewers thoughts? Can you turn off the flow once it has begun a different path? Or freeze the moment?...

When is the thought made? When does the thought take form and place? Is that with the happening of the flow itself or does the work first take form when the viewer looks at it and reflects himself in it?
