Cohen has been filming and photographing lush abstractions of water for the last decade. She has filmed pools, lakes, rivers, oceans, waterfalls, and hot springs, as she has travelled from Argentina to Zimbabwe, Bali to Rio de Janeiro, Bosnia to Botswana, and elsewhere. This journey has resulted in very intimate artworks to large public art projects, large-scale photographs, video sculptures and installations. She is currently developing A Movement in Water, a monumental multimedia installation that immerses the viewer in the sublime moving majesty of water and is intended to shift psychology and inspire reverence for water.
