water with water / فسّر الماء بالماء is an experimental publishing project based in Doha Qatar. Publications and projects of W/W/W speculate in visual form at the intersection of Gulf culture and contemporary art and design.
Our publication activity is grant supported by Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar and Qatar Foundation.
Select publications are available for sale at the Neurotitan Bookshop in Berlin Germany, Printed Matter in New York and various artist book fairs.
Nathan Ross Davis is a design educator, researcher, and maker based in Doha Qatar and Portland Oregon. Nathan initiated water with water as a non-client based visual research lab. This experimental publishing project privileges graphic speculation and visual experimentation which is focused on cultural and intellectual concerns, rather than business driven economics.
