Wet provides viewers with a large close-up of slow moving water, occasionally interrupted with water bubbles and splashing. Since antiquity, water has symbolised various concepts, including the first form of matter (Plato), birth, the fountain of light, everything that exists, and the source and potentiality of everything that is possible.*
