  • Abstract: Several images can vividly convey and express black humor causing melancholy. Among those images, water happens to have a strong evocative power; indeed, water can express the feeling of nothingness, the anguish of being trapped in its shadows, but also possible soothing reassurances, even if they eventually mean the choice of one’s voluntary death.
