“A liquid is a nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shape of its container.”

Over 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water. Life has started long time ago from liquid. Most primitive living forms are molecules evolving and developing themselves into liquid, mainly water. As a result, the marine Life has been playing a pivotal role in the evolution of Life journey on Earth.

Therefore, water is of major importance to all living things: in some organisms, up to 90% of their body weight comes from water; up to 70% of the human adult body is water… Physiologically made out of liquid, the human body also produces some kind of liquid. For example, the tears in my eyes when I cry, this is the liquid that translates my emotions into a biological fluid. Similarly, sweating is literally thermoregulation, how we adjust our body temperature to close environment. This is all about interacting with environment…

At Revver magazine, the environments we constantly interact with are Art, Culture, Design, Aesthetics, and Fashion. Therefore, water is of major importance to us: in this issue #11, we are the container. As such, we make water being “a nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shapes of our conceptions of Art & Fashion”.

Please follow us… Let’s jump into the water!

 

 

 

「液體是一種幾乎不可壓縮的流體,其形狀取決於容納的器皿。」

地球表面超過百分之七十的面積都被水覆蓋,地球上的生命則是在多年以前自液體中誕生。最原始的生命型態是分子,而後進化並發展為以水為主的液體,因此,海洋生命在陸地生命的進化繁衍上扮演著關鍵角色。

由此可見,水對於所有生命來說都至關重要:某些有機生命體的體重有高達百分之九十都來自水,而人體亦有百分之七十都是水……既然生理結構以液體為主,人體自然也會製造出液體,例如眼睛在我哭泣時會流淚,這種液體是基於我的情緒轉化而成的生物流體;同樣的,汗水的功能就是體溫調節,幫助我們適應周遭環境,這些都是我們和環境的一種互動。

而長久以來 Revver 雜誌所處的環境是藝術、文化、設計、美學,與時尚,所以水對我們來說極為重要的:在第十一期的雜誌中,我們就是容器,讓水成為「一種幾乎不可壓縮的流體,其形狀取決於我們對藝術與時尚的想法。」

請和我們一起,躍入水中吧!
