In this animation, a brown figure keeps reappearing in the myriad forms water can assume, from small as a drop to big as a canal to fish in. The image runs parallel to the recitation of Ruben van Gogh's poem Wat weet water. Thus, animator Sander Alt represents the nature of water in fading images in not too bright colours.
