Space of no oneMentor: Michou-Nanon de Bruijn

This is a fictional research of puddles. To determine a notion of a puddle it is being measured, mapped, and visually documented. Understanding puddles better bring us to an ocean space. Even if puddles compared to oceans don’t occupy that much of Earth’s surface, both share some similarities. At the beginning of the 17th century, Dutch lawyer Hugo Grotius published a book Mare Liberum, advocating for the freedom of the seas. An ocean like the air (and puddles) is provided by nature to all of humanity and cannot be the property of anyone. As no one’s space they appear as a place for common use.
