We think of water in a dead heatwave of summer, usually. This artist's subtlety makes one think. What of our natural resources¿ How long will they last¿ Humans need water to survive.
Are you buying bottled water¿ Companies extract it for free and charge you for a natural, limited [really] resource.
What's wrong with drinking your tap water. Should lawns be forbidden to own anymore. Try growing a wild lawn [maybe with corn] and you're neighbours will revile you.
I was just asking myself these questions, after listening to Katie's project. Artist's do make one think, at least, their work should. Has an artist made you think about something so vital to survival lately¿ So important. Have you let your politician know what you're concerned about lately¿
Bravo Katie Paterson for presenting the earth's water issue so magnificantly. So delicately.
