Today we’d like to introduce you to Moses Hacmon.
Moses, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born in 1977 in Tel-Aviv, Israel and immigrated to the US in 2002 in search for higher education. In 2006, I completed a B.Arch with AIA honors award, from SCI_Arc (Southern California Institute of Architecture) here in DTLA. As an architect I have been studying nature as a built environment, searching for its architect and dweller.
While analyzing nature as architecture, I discovered that water is the architect and dweller in all organic structures. I spent ten years studying Water’s composition, properties, and movement. Which led me to developed a photographic technique that captures the hidden life of this substance for the first time; it’s called Faces of Water.
This technique exposes the movement of life within Water and its infinite form. My practice today is part art, part science, and part personal spiritual journey. My work centers on my passion for exploring consciousness in nature through photography, architecture, and movement. I see nature as an intelligent and aware being, full of creativity and intention.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
As someone that follows the flow of life, I do not struggle. But I do work hard. I have been working full time since the age of 14, which helped me move to a new country and start a new life without any support from anyone.
Building a life in a foreign land has its own challenges, which are mostly cultural and financial, especially when attending a private college. I was lucky to have a great community at school and found a full-time job at LAX.
Probably my biggest challenge was language, I remember so many times that I was misunderstood and how it felt. When you are a researcher that brings new ideas to the world, one has to be clear and direct.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Faces of Water – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
Invisible forces in nature, like energy, spirits, vibrations, and gods have traditionally been ignored by science. It is their invisibility that prevents us from studying them. I suspected that water is the component that links spirit to matter – the material to the magical.
As a researching and educational technique, I have created a method to capture the forms that are created in water that have previously been invisible to the naked eye. The images show the movement of water in real time as it reacts to different stimuli both physical and metaphysical.
These images educate people about how water holds an infinite possibility of forms. It is an overwhelming feeling when you realize that you are looking at water’s blueprint for life. This project is in a unique position between science and art/spirit, the images of water are so spectacular that museums and galleries present it as art.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
The future is exciting! I just purchased a building which will be the permanent home for my next endeavor, The Water Museum. The Water Museum’s mission is to research, educate, and inspire action around one of the worlds most magical substances – water. This is done with a fusion of art and science in our 5000 sq ft building in South Los Angeles.
In the past 15 years, new breakthroughs have been made about the biggest unknown in nature – water. The Water Museum will accumulate all of these breakthroughs into one place for the first time. The Water Museum’s evolved from Faces of Water and Channel Water to create the ultimate community gathering space for people interested in sustainability and water. This would be the first museum to combine art, science, history, and philosophy all centered around water.
We believe that it is important to understand that the planet earth is a closed system. We are one body of water and improving our relationship to water will effortlessly improve personal health and global sustainability. The Water Museum goal is to deepen people’s relationship to water and encourage people to treat themselves and other living beings better.
Like a water line, we all rise together. And part of our current education online, we have created Channel Water on YouTube. Knowledge, like water, is useless when there is no access to it. So in order to counteract this, we created Channel Water – a YouTube Channel that publishes free information and resources to learn about water. Channel Water is a family friendly channel that has been growing consistently since its birth in November 2016.
We publish lectures and animations that provide information about water. Topics range from consciousness to the architecture of nature. The channel will be used to share the information available in The Water Museum to people around the world. We will stream all live events in the museum for free worldwide and as well as continuing to produce educational videos.
All of our content will also be available in podcast audio form for places that have limited internet access.
