.

At the Plato's Symposium, the guests, before making speeches about Love, agree not to get drunk at this gathering, but to drink just for pleasure, wine hydrated as usual. Years later at another symposium, a wedding banquet in Cana of Galilee, when wine was gone, Christ did the first of the miracles by changing water into wine.

The project is based on a game known since ancient times. A glass of wine and another one with water, unequally filled with a thread between them, through which the liquid of one is poured into the other. Water and wine are combined in the name of Love. Love in all its forms as a means that connect the opposites, the divine with the human, as the energy that change the composition of human nature.
